MCD to go hi-tech for making tax assessment transparent
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, August 23
The Municipal Commissioner, Mr Rakesh Mehta, said that the Municipal Corporation of Delhi would introduce modern technological means such as computerised records, digital mapping and easier payment methods to make system of property tax assessment in Delhi more citizen-friendly, equitable and transparent.

There is also a proposal to introduce Unit Area Method for assessment of property tax of various properties in Delhi. Under this system, the rateable value of the property would be calculated on the basis of the covered area and unit rateable value, depending on location of the property, age, its use and type of colony.

The Commissioner disclosed that an expert committee has started working under the Chairmanship of Mr K. Dharamrajan to recommend reforms in the property tax system, which will be based on Unit Area Method. This Committee would like to seek the opinion of citizens and other stakeholders on problems being faced in the present system of property tax assessment; and making the system simple and more transparent. This Committee would also seek views on whether the area-based system will make property tax assessment system more rational and equitable. Mr Mehta has appealed to the Resident Welfare Association’s (RWA), industry, trade, market associations, chambers of commerce and other relevant organisations to provide a list of properties in their respective areas/colonies/ localities so as to enable the expert committee to arrive at a more rational system of taxation. It would help the MCD to take into consideration the concerns of citizens. It would also eliminate visits of MCD Inspectors to premises of the citizens. This information would also help the MCD to fix reasonable tax rate. Non-availability of these information can lead to higher taxation levy, he added.

The Commissioner stressed that the inputs provided by associations and citizens would be useful in a series of roundtable conferences, seminars and meetings being organised by the expert committee from time to time to elicit the views of various interest groups.
