The Corporation Standing Committee meeting was held at the Corporation office here on Friday,  chaired by the committee president and councillor of ward 30,  K Anwar Basha.

Mayor P Karthiyayini, deputy mayor V D Dharmalingam and commissioner P Janaki Raveendran participated in the meeting.

The members demanded the Corporation officials to furnish the details of income and expenditure of the local body, for the year 2012-2013. Commissioner Janaki said the accounts for the year 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 were being audited and the details would be furnished in the next meeting. However, she said the expenditure was more than the income and the expenses were being met using other funds.

The members also demanded the local body to raise the tax for buildings, marriage halls and hotels. They noted that the tax that was being collected from the building owners was not raised and increasing the tax amount would increase the income of the local body.

A resolution was also passed demanding the Corporation to raise the tax for the buildings and to strictly monitor the collection of various taxes.
