Property tax - bangalore - non-residential


We (my family) own two industrial units in Bangalore. And both are located in residential areas.

We have been paying property tax every year at the applicable commercial rate and we never had a problem - until now.

A couple of days ago, an inspector from BBMP visited our factory premises, measured the built up area and told us we have been paying taxes at the residential rate and not at the commercial rate. This is false.

He also told us we will be levied a penalty from 2008 till date and t hat we have to pay a penalty of Rs 10 lakhs.

When we protested, he told us he would be sending us a notice shortly.

I get the feeling he was expecting a bribe - which we are unwilling to pay.

In the past, inspectors would visit our factory, take the measurements of the built up area and let us know the tax we had to pay.

They never gave us an assessment order.

What are our options now?

We have been paying our taxes every year and we have all the tax paid receipts.

Any help in this regard would be very much appreciated.

Please Help, I had applied for the trust and the trust is registered as Religious Trust Due to Religious Trust we are unable to get 80G exemption Certificate . We carried out charitable activities during the last three to four years. 80G exemption was rejected on the basis on some objects of Trust deed . After this rejection we communicate with Alibag Charity Commissioner and given application for remove religious object. The Assistant Charity Commissioner Raigad Region, Alibag Passed the order and accepted the changes. As per me IT Officer (Exemption) should consider the changes and accept the trust as charitable. But the officer told to terminate(cancel) the trust and form a new trust. My doubt is new trust will have same trust name and even pan number will be same. I think trust should be amended rather than cancelling and forming new trust. Please help me by any section or case law to proof

is car theft claim settlement taxable in india

Respected experts,

My car was stolen in May 2015, the insurance claim was settled after 8 months of mental torture and harrasment.

My car was 14 months old when it was stolen, I had renewed the policy after 12 months and the idv was 80% of initial ex showroom price.

I had done some partial payment of my car loan hence idv was more than my loan outstanding amount with the bank.

The insurance company had a weird requirement of receving loan closure documents before the claim could be settled which bank was not comfortable with.

I had no choice but to close the loan by arranging for the loan outstanding amount and then finally received the whole of claim settlement amount in my account.

Could you please help me understand if this claim settlement amount of idv would be taxable as per IT laws.

Logically the idv of a car can never be more than the depreciation value of the car. but wanted some expert suggestions on this matter.

Please feel free to reach me on in case you need additional details pertaining to this.

Appreciate your guidance on this issue.

In review meeting Commissioner (Audit) advising the audit officer to demand of penalty under 15(1) of CE rules and interest. This rule is not retrospectively amended, how could they demand u/r 15(1).
Further we have been maintained the balance of amount in our cenvat account. It is very clear that the cenvat availed but not utilized. Hence, there was no question of interest. Experts please comment on this.
