Officials of three civic agencies propose to hire a private concessionaire to conduct a survey of all properties in the city.

Property tax department officials have suggested that a private agency should be hired to prepare the database and find out which house owners are evading tax.

The proposal suggests forming a team comprising a police official,a municipal employee and members of a private agency. “We have suggested inclusion of police in the team for safety of corporation officials,” said MSA Khan,assessor and collector.

The team will prepare a report on each property,which will list out all properties that are evading tax. The team will inspect the area on weekends. If residents are not at home,zonal offices will be given their details and notices dispatched.
