The local bodies department has notified a one-time settlement scheme giving yet another chance to the defaulters who did not clear their long-pending water supply and sewerage dues. Mayor Balkar Sandhu has requested the residents to make use of this scheme and clear their dues.

The policy will remain under implementation for the next 6 months. The civic body has to recover at least 300 crores in outstanding amounts from the defaulters. For the first three months, the residents will be able to avail wavier on interests as well as penalty and after that only penalty will be waived. It is necessary to deposit the entire amount in one go.

Similarly, the penalty will be waived off if the principal amount of arrears and interest is paid after three months from the issuance of this notification but less than 6 months from issuance of notification. The defaulters will have to clear lump sum pending amount otherwise there will be no relief from interest and penalty and also it will invite disconnect of the water and sewerage connections.

The Mayor also said, ” This one-time settlement scheme was much awaited and on Wednesday it was notified. The residents who did not clear their outstanding amount should make use of this scheme to the fullest.”
