A special drive to renew trade licences was conducted by the Mysuru City Corporation on Wednesday.
It was held under the auspices of the Mysuru Hotel Owners’ Association. In all, 239 licences of entrepreneurs in the hotel industry were renewed.
A release stated that the MCC collected ₹20.81 lakh as licence fee during the drive which was inaugurated by MCC Commissioner Shilpa Nag. The association members also raised issues related to what they described as double taxation and said the MCC was collecting twice the amount stipulated for licence fee in case of properties that did not have Completion Reports and sought that this was relaxed.
