GVMC Staff Protest at Private Hospital :-
The staff of the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation staged a protest at a private hospital in Visakhapatnam on Tuesday saying that the hospital authorities had not been paying property tax for many years. According to the GVMC officials, the St Joseph’s (American) Hospital in Visakhapatnam had not paid property tax since 1995 which amounts to 4.66 crore. “With interest, the amount doubled to about Rs.10 crore. With a recent order from the court, the hospital only paid a few lakhs recently. If nobody pays the property tax, it becomes difficult for the civic body to pay even salaries of the employees,” added a GVMC official. When contacted the hospital authorities said they recently paid Rs.80 lakh. “As the case is in the court, we would only pay on its direction.” a representative of the hospital added. She further alleged that the GVMC officials were threatening them.
