Earlier the government had issued orders for waiver of 90 percent accumulated arrear interest on property tax, provided the payer clears the principal amount of taxes due till the year 2019-20 together with 10 percent of interest at one go.
The second time extension is a result of floods reported in the state, "The GHMC Commissioner and Director of Municipal Administration have reported that due to Dharani Survey and incessant rains, distribution of relief to the affected families. The revenue wing of the state were unable to clear the appeals received from tax payers. Thus the one-time-scheme has been extended by 15 days ending mid of November" government order said.
