Officials also told the commissioner that some of the major property tax defaulters, including Power Grid, CBSE, HSVP, Red Bishop Tourism and Tau Devi Lal Stadium owed tax worth lakhs and crores. The commissioner instructed officers to serve notices on property tax defaulters. They were asked to serve a final notice on property tax defaulters who had received notices earlier and start sealing their properties.

Asking people to pay property tax, the commissioner said that 15% rebate would be given to people who self-certified their properties with their mobile numbers.
