Lt Governor Manoj Sinha was addressing, ‘My Town My Pride’ meeting after inaugurating SRTC Bridge at Baramulla today.
He said, “Recently a property tax was thrust on people of J&K. I am telling you very responsibly and consciously that no such tax would be levied in Jammu and Kashmir by the UT administration.”
Referring to the recent amendment in J&K Panchayat Raj Act, Lt. Governor allayed the apprehensions that the Panchayat representatives would cease to receive the monthly honorarium by virtue of these amendments in the Panchayat law.
“I want to inform all the Panchayat representatives that the government is thinking of increasing your remunerations rather than stopping the same. These are baseless rumours which you should not pay any heed,’ he added.
The Lt. Governor also solicited the opinion of Panchayat representatives in increasing the developmental index in Baramulla district.
He said that the union government has recently amended J&K Panchayat Raj Act by virtue of which District Development Councils would be formed in each district so that the people are benefited by the developmental activities planned at the grassroots levels.

The Lt Governor dedicated the Fish Market Bridge to the public and said that the bridge will cater to the needs of thousands of pedestrians and the long pending demands of the locals have been redressed with the construction of this bridge.
It was informed that the bridge is a vital link between Old Town Iqbal Market and Fish Market which is a business hub of Baramulla town. It reduces the commuting distance of 1.50 km to 110 meters.
