Dhanbad Municipal Corporation has decided to organize camps for rent realization of its shops situated in different parts of the district. The move is intended at mopping up revenue realization through a wide range of activities, including through incentive offers for rent payment,

The series of camps beginning with the camp scheduled at Park Market Hirapur on July 15 is being organized in association with different local units of Federation of Dhanbad Zila Chamber of Commerce including the Park Market Chamber of Commerce and Sindri Chamber of Commerce are aimed at collecting the long pending rent by offering concession of five percent on full payment of pending rent before July 31.


The notice issued by Satynedra Kumar, Municipal Commissioner also announced a five percent concession on advance payment of annual rent for the financial year, 2021-22.

While the rent realization camp at Park Market and Hirapur Hatia will be organized on July 15 and 16 respectively, the camp for rent realization of DMC shops at Sindri will be organized on July 17.

Notably, around 250 shops of DMC are situated in Park Market and Hirapur Hatia while around 300 shops are situated in different parts of Sindri including at Saharpura Market of Sindri and Jaihind More of Sindri.

Welcoming the move, Sanjeev Chaurasia, president of Park Market Chamber of Commerce, said, “we are cooperating with the civic body in organizing the camp and have informed all the shop keepers of Hirpur Hatia and Park Market in advance about the camps scheduled at respective places on July 15 and 16 respectively.”

“The camp will help the shopkeepers avoid unnecessary harassment of making rounds of Dhanbad Municipal Corporation office for paying their due rents,” said Chourasia.

Echoing sentiments, President of Sindri Chamber of Commerce, Deepak Kumar Dipu said, “The camp scheduled at NAC Market complex of Sindri on July 17 will prove a golden opportunity for shop keepers of Sindri to pay their pending dues in hassle free manner and enjoy concessions and at the same time. The activity will also help the DMC realize the rent in bulk manner including the rent of some of the shopkeepers lying since several years.”

“The trade body is all out to extend support to the Dhanbad Municipal Corporation but we at same time will also use the opportunity to draw the attention of civic body authorities to address the long pending issue of water logging in Saharpura market due to pending construction of around 500 meter of drain,” Dipu said.
