Around 6000 owners of commercial vehicles -including mini trucks, trucks, transports, taxis, autos and tempos – have dodged payment of tax to the tune of over Rs 4 crore roughly.
The time for which the payable tax is pending with these defaulters varies from a half year to the last three-four years, authorities said.
Awakening to the misfortunes caused by the division due to the non-payment of taxes by these defaulters, the office has now begun issuing notification to around 2000 such vehicle owners, some of whom have sidestepped tax for last three-four years.
In the notification, the defaulters have been asked to either pay the tax or be prepared for a recovery certificate against them.
The recovery certificate has been set up against 100 such defaulters to set an example, authorities said.
Regional transport officer (RTO) Ajay Tripathi (Ghaziabad area) who was on a visit to the ARTO office in Sector 33 for a review said that a rundown of the defaulters is being readied.
“We have recorded around 6000 defaulters will’s identity issued sees cautioning them to pay the assessment as quickly as time permits. A recuperation authentication will be issued against them on the off chance that they neglect to store the sum pending against them,” Tripathi told TOI.
ARTO (organization) Arunendra Pandey said that the vehicle office has effectively sent around 100 recuperation letters to district magistrate’s office suggesting that the tax pending against them be recouped.
“We have sent the recovery letters to the DM’s office. It is in his authority to issue them for the sake of the defaulter and recuperate the pending sum,” Pandey said.
Speaking to TOI from Lucknow, DM BN Singh said that he is yet to see the letters and will take a call on them after reaching Noida.
The district magistrate uses his powers to issue the recovery certificate compelling the defaulter to pay the tax.
