Now dog owners will have to pay dog ​​tax!  Know these rules, otherwise the dog’s hobby will wind up in jail!

New Delhi: It is said that people keep pets to reduce stress. Spending time with him can ease your loneliness to some extent. But keeping dogs is now becoming a burden for the people. You must be wondering what is the problem with this. By now you must have heard about income tax, water tax, house tax, electricity tax and many such taxes, but have you heard that tax has to be paid for keeping a pet dog. Yes, this is bad news for the dog lovers of Prayagraj. People fond of keeping dogs in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh will now have to pay ‘dog tax’. Dog tax collection teams have been formed in Prayagraj, which is looking for ‘dog tax’ from dog owners. Not only this, if you have a dog and you think that no one will know, then do not get confused, the informer of the municipality will send its information to the concerned department of the corporation and in this case you will have to pay compensation. Your dog could be confiscated.

 

 

Ever since the municipal corporation announced the imposition of dog tax, more than 500 dog owners have deposited Rs 690 per dog per year. Upon depositing the dog tax, you will receive a badge that will record your dog’s registration number. This is not the end of the matter. Dog owners who fail to pay Rs 690 per annum will have to pay a fine of Rs 5000. Now you would think that an amount like 690 is not a big deal.

 

Let us also tell you that before paying this tax, dog owners have to get registered, which is charged at Rs 1000. There is a provision of 7 years imprisonment for not registering this. Dog registration is necessary to prevent the spread of the rabies virus to people through dog bites. After all this process is completed, the dog will also be given a dog tag to wear around the neck which they will have to wear compulsorily.

 

 

A section of the Municipal Corporation Act states that if you keep a dog, the dog identification and vaccination rules have to be followed as well as dog taxation rules. Dog tax is a big problem for those who have more than one dog. Many times common and poor people bring homeless and destitute dogs and take care of them, but after this rule the question has arisen whether people will pay this tax or not. Dog lover Vanshika Gupta says that after this rule, the food and drink of all street dogs will also stop. Do not levy tax on this too.
