The GMC has started drives against the erring buildings. Based on the ground reality, some of the 252 buildings will have to be sealed, and some will have to be dismantled by their owners." Konwar also said that the drive against illegally installed pump sets is also going on in full swing in the city. "As many as 115 pump sets have been seized and each of the erring families has been fined Rs 20,000," Konwar said.

Meanwhile, the GMC Commissioner has appealed to the people of the State to pay their property tax for the year 2015-16.
