Punjab: High Court rejects petition of defaulter private bus company

Chandigarh, Oct 22 (UNI) Under the leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, the campaign waged against the tax defaulter private companies by Transport Minister Amarinder Singh Raja Warring got a major boost when the Punjab and Haryana High Court rejected a petition filed by the private bus operator New Deep bus company against the decision of Regional Transport Authority, Faridkot, thus refusing to give any relief.
The bus operator company while arguing its case in the court had admitted that it had not deposited the balance of Motor Vehicle Tax from January to October, 2021. The company cited various reasons such as less passengers due to Covid-19 restrictions, losses owing to free bus travel facility for women by the Punjab Government and victimization because of hailing from the other side of the political spectrum but the court refused to give any relief with regard to filing taxes on time.
It is noteworthy that due to the strict action against the tax defaulter private companies plying their buses in the State in violation of the transport norms and without paying taxes, the State netted Rs 4.29 crore as tax. During the campaign, 258 buses plying in the State without tax, documents besides illegal permits, were impounded including 26 buses of the New Deep Company for not paying 10 months' tax.
