Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gets a legal notice for not paying land tax in Nashik
Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who was last seen in Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan 1 was served a notice for not paying the agricultural tax. As per the reports, the tax amounting to Rs. 21,960 was due on her one-hectare land in Adiwadi village of Sinnar taluka of Nashik district. It has been reported that even after repeated reminders from the district administration of Nashik Aishwarya allegedly avoided paying the amount for an entire assessment year.
Now after the legal notice was served to the actress, her legal advisor has promised to clear all dues today, January 18. “Legal advisor of the actress met us today and told us that the tax will be paid by tomorrow,” Sinnar tehsildar Eknath Bangale said to a media outlet. Further adding to this, Bangale said, “She has invested in a windmill. The land was bought in 2009. She has paid the tax for all these years. Only the tax for this particular assessment year is pending.”
“Our revenue assessment year starts from August. We have sent her demand notice twice but there was no response. Now on January 9, we have again sent a notice to her to pay the tax. We had given her 10 days’ time, but now her advisor told us that the tax will be paid by tomorrow,” he added.
