Mysore, July 30 (RK&KMC)- Officials of the Revenue Section of the City Corporation were taken to task by the Mayor today for not commencing their work even at 11.15 am and keeping the tax-payers waiting for more than an hour.

Mayor Sandesh Swamy, who reached the Corporation office at 11.12 am, found a queue of citizens waiting to pay taxes at the Revenue Section Counter located at the front of the MCC building.

On checking, Sandesh found that the officials were not in their seats, though they were supposed to commence their work at 10.30 am. The bank representatives assigned for the tax collection, start work at 11 am.

On enquiring, the officials gave lame excuses to the Mayor, much to his chagrin. He sternly told the officials to finish their breakfast and other such activities at their home itself and be punctual for their duty.

The tax-payers were heard showering praises on the Mayor for righting the erring officials.
