Panipat MC chief suspended over slow revenue recovery process

Panipat, November 1

Following ULB Minister Anil Vij’s recommendation, the state government on Saturday suspended Panipat Municipal Corporation Sushil Kumar, HCS, with immediate effect.

As per the order issued by Chief Secretary Vijay Vardhan, Sushil will be paid subsistence allowance and other allowances as are admissible to him under Rule 83 of Chapter-VII of Haryana Civil Services (General) Rules -2016 during the period of his suspension. Moreover, his headquarter will be in the office of the Chief Secretary (in Service-1 Branch) at Chandigarh, the order reads.

A few days ago, Vij had had reviewed the financial situation and revenue collection reports of all 10 MCs in the state and the MC was at the last spot in recovery of property tax. As per sources, the MC General House has proposed a total income of Rs 131 crore in 2020-21, including Rs 40 crore from property tax, but only Rs 9.74 crore has been collected so far.

Vij had recommended the Commissioner’s suspension reportedly for his lethargic attitude towards revenue collection, including the property tax. — TNS
