Margao civic body hikes many fees, yet to decide on house tax, ET RealEstate

June 24, 2023

MARGAO: The Margao Municipal Council (MMC), at a meeting held on Friday, decided to hike the fees of several services, but deferred taking any decision on the proposal to increase house tax and garbage collection fees.

The proposal to increase house tax and garbage collection fees was met with stiff resistance from the residents of Margao earlier.

The Shadow Council for Margao had led protests over the proposed hike in house tax. While the move was aimed at mopping up additional revenue for the council, other untapped sources of revenue continue to remain untouched, a charge that the Shadow Council has persistently made.

While the issue did not come up for discussion at the meeting although it figured in the agenda, councillors participating in discussions on other matters urged MMC chairperson Damodar Shirodkar to think of untapped revnenue sources instead of burdening the common man with an increase in house tax and garbage collection fees.

Most of the issues raised at the meet pertained to matters concerning garbage collection, sanitation and poor maintenance of vehicles owned by the municipality.
