Harassing tax defaulters
It is strange to note that the Bhopal Municipal Corporation will soon come out with a campaign for the recovery of tax amounts from big defaulters.
The civic workers would beat drums outside the houses of such defaulters and place posters of tax defaulters under this campaign. The municipal corporation used to hold campaigns from time to time for tax collections.
This seems to be a disgraceful campaign that is affecting the social images of the tax defaulters and it is not appropriate in a democratic country. The need of the hour is that concerned authorities should initiate legal actions against defaulters. An awareness campaign regarding tax payment and encouraging people to pay taxes can be the right option.
