Zonal Commissioners told to review sanctioned works

The existing taxes would be continued in Anakapalle and Bheemunipatnam and the 10 villages that have been merged into GVMC recently, Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana said at a review meeting on Saturday.

The existing tax system in the two former municipalities must not be changed and the town planning permission should be issued as per the existing rules and regulations, he told the officials concerned.

Additional Commissioner B. Nagendra Kumar, Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) Somannarayana, Zonal Commissioner in-charge of Anakapalle Zone Srinivas, Zonal Commissioner of Bheemli Zone Rammohan, OSD for IT Nageswara Rao and other officials participated in the review meeting.
