Agra’s Taj Mahal is attracting the world for its ambiance and its structure is in the headlines. According to the reports, the tourist place in India which is also among the seven wonders served notices for property tax and water bills for the first time in its 370-year history. Administrators of the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) said it might have been done unknowingly and they assured that this will be remedied soon. As soon as the news rolled out on the internet it created a buzz and now everyone wants to know more about the news, and also the amount that the Taj Mahal is due to pay.
According to the latest reports, the Taj Mahal and the Agra fort both have been served forewarnings for their due bills by various divisions of the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government. The ASI is asked to pay more than ₹ 1 crore in “dues”. Raj Kumar Patel who is currently serving as ASI’s superintending archaeologist in Agra said that a total of 3 notices have been sent to the Taj Mahal’s higher authority as a reminder for their due bills of water and house tax. “For the Taj Mahal, we have got two notices, one for property tax and the other from the water supply department that has 12 points. A total of 1 crore plus rupees has been demanded from the ASI”, he said in his statement.
Will The Taj Mahal Pay The House Tax?
In his statement, Dr. Patel said in a statement, Property, most importantly, expense or house charge isn’t appropriate to landmark premises. Uttar Pradesh regulations have this arrangement as well thus do different states. Concerning the water notice, in the past, no such interest has been made and we have no water association that we use for any business purposes. The yards that we keep up with inside the Taj complex are for public help and there is no doubt of duty”.
There is no doubt that since the Taj Mahal has built in the nation, it is a hot potato. One of seven wonders is a UNESCO world heritage site that was built by the Mughal emperor Akbar, according to the mythology and stories the place was the main residence of the monarchs of the Mughal Dynasty until 1638 when the capital was moved from Agra to Delhi. A spokesperson for ASI stated that the historic monument recently revised a 5-crore rupees tax demand. Now, the main thing that has been making this news even more controversial is, despite being in the swim about the all rules and terms, how did the monument get the tax letter?
