    The Haryana government has taken a significant step by waiving the interest and penalty amounting to nearly Rs 8,000 crore on outstanding property taxes across the state. This decision was announced by the Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, during a press conference held on October 6 in Chandigarh. Additionally, a 15 percent rebate will be provided for those who pay their property tax arrears.

    The Chief Minister highlighted that the introduction of the ‘Property IDs,’ an online property management system, had revealed substantial property tax arrears in a large number of properties. In light of this, he made the decision to provide relief to the citizens by waiving the interest and penalty on their outstanding property tax.

    Khattar also acknowledged that there might be instances of disputes or cases where individuals have paid their taxes, but the payment is not reflected in the system. To address these issues and ensure that the maximum number of people benefit from this scheme, the government will establish special camps throughout the state. These camps will have property tax department officials present with all the necessary data and information to assist the public.

    Furthermore, the Chief Minister discussed the Haryana government’s Mukhyamantri Shahri Aawas Yojana, which aims to provide housing to economically weaker sections (EWS) of society. Approximately two lakh people have already applied for this scheme. Under this initiative, applications are invited from impoverished families with an annual income of less than Rs 1.8 lakh and who do not own a residential unit. The plot size offered under the scheme is one marla or 272 square feet (sq ft) and is priced at around Rs 1 lakh. The flats available under the scheme range from 450 square feet and are priced between Rs 6 lakh and Rs 8 lakh, depending on the city. The government will facilitate loan facilities from banks for a maximum period of 20 years to enable people to benefit from this program.

    Additionally, the Chief Minister disclosed that the government has decided to regularize 303 colonies in 14 districts immediately. An allocation of Rs 3,000 crore has been earmarked for the development of essential infrastructure in these colonies. Since 2014, a total of 1,438 colonies have been regularized in the state as part of this ongoing initiative.
