Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the assessor of the county of Nassau is hereby authorized to accept from Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan, Inc. an application for exemption from real property taxes pursuant to section 420-a of the real property tax law with respect to the 2010-2011 assessment roll, with respect to a portion of the 2010-2011 school taxes and a portion of the 2011 general taxes, and for the 2011-2012 assessment roll with respect to the 2011-2012 school taxes and the 2012 general taxes, for the parcel located in the town of Hempstead at 2026 Grand Avenue, Baldwin, other- wise known as section 54, block 24, lot 282.
