Tax Man Warns Deadbeats: 'Pay Up, or We Send in the Drums'

BBC, Drumming Up Tax Payers in Bangalore: Shaming Defaulters:

With the sound of the drums echoing off the walls of the surrounding buildings, it feels as if it could be an impromptu street performance - but it's not.

This is tax collecting Bangalore-style.

Fed up with companies refusing to pay their tax bills, the city has gone one better than merely sending out reminder letters.

Instead it is striking back, shaming local tax avoiders, through the use of music.

Bangalore has a clear message to offenders: Pay up or we send in the drummers, and then everybody will know what you've done wrong.

(Hat Tip: Lori McMillan.)
