The Punjab government, in a major relief to residents, announced an one-time settlement policy for all pending property tax dues. A notification regarding the same was issued by the state government on Monday.
Giving details of the notification issued, Ludhiana Municipal Corporation commissioner Sandeep Rishi on Monday said that the scheme will be beneficial for anyone who have not paid property tax in the past.
