Pune civic body seals restaurant owned by Union Minister Narayan Rane’s son over tax dues worth Rs 3.77 crore

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on Tuesday sealed a restaurant owned by BJP leader Nilesh Rane, son of Union minister Narayan Rane, for not clearing property tax dues worth Rs 3.77 crore. The restaurant is housed on the third floor of the R-Deccan Mall.

Nilesh Rane’s younger brother Nitesh Rane said the dues will be cleared soon. “There is nothing wrong if the action is as per rules. The dues will be cleared soon,” he said.

A few months ago, the PMC had protested against Nitesh Rane for using foul language against civic body officers for not taking action against illegal religious structures of the minority community.

The PMC has been going all out to recover dues from defaulters of property tax. It had recently auctioned a few properties that were not clearing the dues for long. The civic administration has also reintroduced the playing of band music in front of properties with high dues.

Meanwhile, the civic body staff who effected the sealing of the Rane property was unaware that it is run by the son of a Union minister.

“A total of 16 properties were sealed by the civic administration on Tuesday as a part of action against defaulters of tax. It included a restaurant on the third floor of R Deccan Mall which has dues of Rs 3.77 crore,” said Madhav Jagtap, in-charge of the Property Tax department.

“Through strict action against defaulters, the PMC is able to recover around Rs eight crore of dues every day,” Jagtap said, adding that the PMC has decided to keep its tax collection offices open on weekends till March-end so defaulters are able to clear their dues before the end of the financial year.
