It is pertinent to mention here that after issuing official notices repeatedly to the defaulters by the authority concerned of district transport department, several thousand such tax defaulters have not yet paid their respective dues to the government till date for which having no other options, the authority concerned finally intensified door to door operation against the defaulters across the district.

Besides, without valid documents or other official permission, over 2 hundreds of tractors, trailers and JCB are being engaged for a long time in various brick kilns in the district and the department concerned has initiated stern action against those tractors, trailers and JCB across the district, he added.
Urging all the tax defaulters to pay their dues on or before March 25, DTO Bora asserted that no defaulters would be spared from the enforcement teams in the district.
If they will not pay their dues in time, additional penalties will be imposed on a daily basis, DTO Bora said.
