The office of the Bank of Baroda and Post Office, located on the ground floor of the Public Utility Building also known as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose building, on MG Road was sealed by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) estate department.

Non-Payment of Rent Leads to Office Sealings by Palike

The offices were sealed as they had non-payment of rent and non-compliance with palike notice says Palike official.

The Palike Official says That Bank of Baroda has not paid the revised rentals since 2011 and from 2022, no payments were made at all. The officials included the revised rentals, tax and interest and the total payable amount comes up to Rs 17.56 crores. The postal department has been paying rent based on old rates since 2006. Based on GST and interest, the payable amount today, stands at Rs 2.32 crores. 

Bank, Postal Department Challenge BBMP Action on Rent Dues

Snehal R is the Zonal Commissioner at  BBMP East zone. BBMP would seal their offices, and the orders were implemented accordingly. She had also sent notice to these offices, as they have been unable to clear the pending rental amount along with revised rates, interest and taxes for many years.

The bank authorities go towards the BBMP and claimed that they had gotten a hold on against the revised rentals. However, this claim needs to be verified. Postal department officials also spoke with the BBMP, but the palike needs written documents in their case says Snehal R , Zonal Commissioner.
