Gurugram, Feb 24 (IANS) The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has sealed 12 commercial properties in upscale areas of the city for not paying property tax, an official said on Friday.

The MCG sealed five commercial vends located on the Unitech Cyber Park Tower C in Sector 39 for not paying property tax.
