According to her, any person wishing to regularise his rental obligations to the NRC can do so by visiting any nearby Railway Property Management Company Limited Zonal, Area or Head Office to pay their rents including all outstanding rents without further delay or face stiff sanctions by the Management.

The Assistant Chief Corporate Affairs Officer further stressed that all tenants who have transferred Railway properties to third parties without the prior consent of the Railway Property Management Company Limited should urgently do so or risk revocation of allocation or forfeiture of the right to exercise the option to renew allocation upon expiration.

“The public and all concerned are therefore warned to desist from entering into any transaction(s) relating to Railway Lands with anybody without the express prior written approval from Railway Property Management Company Limited while stressing further that all payments for outstanding rents should be made on or before 30th November 2019 to avoid sanctions” she said.
