The PMC administration had discussions with the officials of Pune Cantonment Board and Khadki Cantonment Board over revenue sharing of LBT. The PMC was sharing revenue of octroi with the cantonment boards in the ratio of population.
However,implementation of LBT in the cantonment area is becoming a problem due to differences in the rule governing the local bodies, said municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak.
The cantonment board has no system or dedicated staff to implement LBT,he said,adding the revenue for cantonment board would be from PMC.
The PMC has given option to cantonment board to either keep revenue sharing in the ratio of population in the respective areas of local civic bodies or by considering the actual business in the cantonment area, he said,adding this is being done to ensure that the traders dont have to pay LBT twice by paying PMC as the goods would pass through its jurisdiction and cantonment board where the goods would be sold.
