About Rs 121 crore has been collected in the last eight months of the current financial year. Due to the continuous activities of the corporations, 33 per cent tax has been levied on the current account so far in the current financial year.
The remaining Rs 252 crore in tax collection will be collected within this financial year. Also, notices have already been issued to companies with tax arrears of over Rs 1 crore. They will be prosecuted, the official said.
