To create awareness among the Vizag folks about the Income Tax, the city celebrated the 159th Year of Income Tax Day celebrations with a ‘Taxathon 5K’ walk. The Income Tax Awareness walk was organised on Beach Road on Sunday, July 21, morning in Vishakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

Before flagging off the Taxathon, Pathi highlighted the importance of walking for a healthy lifestyle, comparing it with payment of tax for a flourishing nation and its unity. He also focused on the health benefits of including a brisk walk for about 20-30 minutes a day.
