Drummers Force Tax Defaulters to Pay

 

City officials in the Indian city of Andhra Pradesh have hired twenty groups of drummers to play outside the homes of residents who refuse to pay long overdue property tax.

"They put up a spectacle outside the houses of defaulters, draw them out and explain their dues to them and the need to clear it at the earliest," spokesman TSR Anjaneyulu said.

The drummers will play continuously until the tax defaulters agree to pay their dues. 18% of the backlog of unpaid property tax has been cleared in a week.

What about the 50 odd neighbours who are suffering from breach of the peace....
If the defaulter doesn't give up almost instantly then won't be long before the cops are involved.
