: Tiruchi Corporation is planning to open tax payment counters in Tiruverumbur area and additional counters in the city, Corporation Commissioner V.P.Thandapani has said. The corporation was also examining the feasibility of introducing an online tax payment system.

With five new wards being added to the city following the merger of the Tiruverumbur Town Panchayat and four other village panchayats with the Corporation, residents of the newly added areas have to depend on online counters functioning in the city.

Currently, 24 tax collection centres were functioning in the city.

Speaking at a meeting to review tax collection, Mr.Thandapani said steps would be taken to open tax payment counters in Tiruverumbur and additional counters in other parts of the city in association with banks.

Interested banks could come forward to join hands with the Corporation to open counters in their branches.
