PUNE: Citizens of Pimpri and Chinchwad will not have to pay extra to use the municipal corporation’s pay point system when paying their property and water taxes.
According to Sahebrao Gaikwad, assistant commissioner, PCMC, pay point centres are being opened on a public private partnership (PPP basis) at the Citizen Facilitation Centres (CFCs) located at the PCMC main office building in Pimpri and the four zonal offices.
Citizens can pay their property and water taxes at these centres. At present, only one pay point centre at the main office building is operational. Gaikwad said that the pay point centres at other locations would be operationalised next month.
“The PCMC is considering a proposal to give Rs 3 per transaction to the private contractor as service charges. Citizens will not be charged a fee. A proposal in this regard will be tabled before the standing committee at the weekly meeting to be held next week.”
Gaikwad said that PCMC already charges Rs 5 in the property and tax bills issued to citizens.
