In a significant move, the Left government in Kerala on Wednesday opted to amend the Kerala Revenue Recovery Act, 1968. These amendments aim to modernize the decades-old act. The changes were greenlit during a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, as per a CMO statement issued here.

Key amendments include reducing the interest on tax arrears, enabling online publication of sale information for attached properties, providing options to sell attached properties to help defaulters pay back arrears, and permitting installment payments in revenue recovery.
