Political parties oppose commissioner over tax reforms
January, 09th 2009

Political parties have strongly contested the municipal commissioner Pravinsinh Pardeshi's statement that rejection in tax reforms would
affect flow of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) funds.

Municipal commissioner Pravinsinh Pardeshi talking to TOI on Wednesday said the PMC has made a commitment to the central government on tax reforms and failure of which could affect the flow of JNNURM funds. The JNNURM requires certain reforms to be undertaken by states and cities in order to levy user charges on different municipal services.

However politicos have different take on this matter. "The JNNURM reforms don't put any burden on citizens. Already the PMC is collecting heavy taxes from citizens. Civic body is receiving JNNURM funds without any problems and will continue to receive the same. There is no need to hike taxes for JNNURM funds" said Congress corporator Virendra Kirad. MP Suresh Kalmadi has announced the Congress stand to oppose any hike in civic taxes
. We remain firm on our stand and will oppose the tax hike proposal in the standing committee and in the general body, he added.

NCP corporator Nilesh Nikam said, "Already the PMC has made reforms in tax structure during Nitin Kareers tenure. Taxes are now charged based on the annual rateable value of the property. Also various zones are established for the same. Now the civic administration should not pressurise elected representatives to get approval for hike in tax."

BJP corporator Ujwal Keskar has demanded that the civic administration should justify the tax hike proposal. "Before the standing committee and the general body takes any stand on the tax hike, civic administration should justify the proposal and explain the reason for tax hike" said Keskar.
