Bengal Govt to waive 10% of property tax for the elderly

Bengal Govt to waive 10% of property tax for the elderly

The State Government has proposed to waive 10 per cent of the property tax for elderly citizens.

It may be mentioned that this comes at the time when Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has stated that the state government will take many steps to extend all support to the elderly.

To bring this into effect, the State Government is going to bring two amending Bills in the Assembly – The West Bengal Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2018 and The West Bengal Municipality (Amendment) Bill, 2018.
Waiving of 10 per cent property tax has some social implications as well.

Since coming to power, the Trinamool Congress Government has taken several steps for the benefit of elderly people and at the same time, ensured that the benefits reach the grassroot level.

It has also been proposed in the state Budget that the monthly pension of farmers will be increased to Rs 1,000 from Rs 750. At present, around 66,000 elderly farmers get the monthly pension.

In a bid to ensure social security of aged farmers, the State Government has decided to bring in 34,000 more elderly farmers under the scheme of old-age pension. With this increase in the number of beneficiaries, a total of 1 lakh elderly farmers are going to get the benefits.
