With rewards galore for the World Cup winning Indian cricket team, the MCD has also proposed to waive property tax of players from the city for lifetime.
Mayor Prithvi Raj Sawheney has proposed that the four Delhi players - Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra - who have their properties in Delhi, will no longer be required to pay property tax to the civic body.
According to the corporation, under Section 177 of the Delhi Municipal Act, the MCD can take such a decision.
"Considering all these players have properties in Delhi, we have decided that property tax of all the four Delhi players will be waived for lifetime. A proposal in this regard will be brought in the MCD Standing Committee soon," the Mayor said.
"It will take at least 10 days to draft the proposal and it is expected to be implemented from this year," Yogender Chandolia, chairman of the Standing Committee, said.
