NIZAMABAD: The Municipal Corporation of Nizamabad is learnt to have been toying with the idea of imposing tax on pet dogs and prepared a file to that effect for the approval of Collector and Special Officer D. Varaprasad.
According to sources, the civic body also tentatively fixed Rs.100 as registration fee for each pet dog. This is viewed as part of the efforts to reduce the number of dogs, either pets or stray dogs in the town. The proposal from the civic body is that if the pets' owners do not come forward to get their dogs sterilised, tax should be imposed.
However, when contacted the Collector pleaded ignorance of any such file and added that the proposal may be from Municipal Health Officer Dr. Sirajuddin.
