The Raia gram sabha on Sunday resolved to ask the Panchayat body to crack down on migrants in the village with members demanding that the Panchayat keep a check on landlords renting out their premises to outsiders.
Villagers also urged the panchayat to continue collecting one month rent form the migrants as per the rules. Sarpanch Xavier Fernandes informed that the panchayat has till date collected an amount of Rs 42,000. Gram sabha members were also informed that there was a pendency in collection of house tax with amount of Rs 13 lakh being out standing while villagers demanded as to why the panchayat failed to act in the collection of the huge outstanding amount. Sarpanch Fernandes explained to the aggrieved gram sabha members on the difficulty of sending demand notices to defaulters as there was no full time secretary for the panchayat.
