Faridabad, September 20
The payment of property tax in the city has gone paperless as owners will now be able to submit it online. At present, the city has around 2.62 lakhproperty taxpayers.
Municipal Corporation Commissioner Yash Garg said while it was for the first time that property tax payment had been facilitated online, the new system was expected to bring in more revenue for the civic body, which had been dependent on old and dwindling manual system having complaints of inefficiency and poor transparency.
A senior official said the facility was made available on onlineharyana.gov.in, where the consumer could easily pay the tax from anywhere and anytime depending upon one’s own convenience.
The authorities have also announced a rebate up to 25 per cent on the total pending amount for the period between 2010-11 and 2016-17, if the property tax owners have submitted their house or property for the past three years (period between 2017-18 and 2019-20) on time and without any delay. An additional one per cent rebate will also be applicable in such cases, it is added.
The total number of property taxpayers in the city is expected to rise to 5 lakh next year as the survey to find the new taxpayers since 2011-12 is also on.
According to sources, the annual income of the MC from the property tax is around Rs 45 crore, but an amount of over Rs 150 crore is unrecovered.
