Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], July 3 (ANI): Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) has found a unique way to make people pay their pending house taxes.
The organisation on Wednesday morning hired a band of musicians who played Dhols for few hours in front of the house of the defaulters.
The musicians were seen standing outside a hotel along with the security personnel in Lucknow. One of them was also holding a banner having notice of warning.
Interestingly, reacting in utter embarrassment, a hotel owner immediately coughed up Rs 19 lakh to the authorities which he had not paid from the past several years. (ANI)
