Pune Property Tax: Exemption For Decorated Soldiers Sought
The War Decorated India (TWDI), an organisation representing the highly decorated soldiers (HDS), has urged the Pune Municipal Corporation to provide complete tax exemption on one property personally owned by such soldiers.
The demand was put forth in a letter written by Major Uday Sathe, state director, WDI, who also met Mayor Mohan Singh Rajpal asking for several concessions for the HDS.
