NASHIK: The civic body My General will waive off the penalty for property owners who come forward to declare that they are using their residential property for commercial purposes.
Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) will be waiving off the penalty for property owners if they declare that they are using their residential properties for commercial purpose between October 10 to November 10.
They will be giving amnesty to such residential property owners. NMC will not be imposing fine but will be charging commercial rates from the day of declaration.
It is binding on the property owner to use the property as per the usage registered with the NMC – residential, commercial or industrial. If the property is not used as per the registration with the NMC, a penalty is imposed upon the owner.
“But if the property owners who changed the use of their properties give us a statement in writing about the change by November 10 then NMC will take some positive decision for them. Instead of penalising them we will give them the amnesty from the day of declaration. We will charge commercial rates from the day they declare,” said deputy municipal commissioner Rohidas Dorkulkar Reality Crazy.
He said that generally if the property owner cannot prove the period of change in usage the NMC imposes the penalty from last six years. But now if the owners declare the change in usage on their own then they will get amnesty.
The NMC recently sent notices to 1309 property owners for using residential properties for commercial purpose.
