In Pune, it is the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) or Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) that assesses a property to give it a value and levy tax on a person’s property as per the location of property.
PMC has been in active service since 1950 and gathers property tax as its second biggest source of revenue after Octroi.
With the aim of automating the entire property tax assessment process and to boost its revenue, the PMC in September 2016 started carrying out geo-tagging of properties in its jurisdiction along with identifying unauthorised and illegal properties by using Geographic Information System (GIS). Since 1950, the Pune Municipal Corporation /Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation has been assessing a property to give it a value and levy tax on a person’s property as per the location of property.
Since September, the automation exercise has started work on:
Verifying existing property size.
Displaying information about owner of property.
Taking photographs of the properties and documents.
PMC has under its scanner around 8 lakh properties that have been consistently mapped with the use of GIS technology with the aim of mapping a majority of properties in the near future. This makes for an amazing revenue accumulation for the Pune Municipal Corporation by making defaulter identification simpler.
The tax on property is applicable to almost all the properties and vacant lands inside the Municipal corporation boundaries. Property tax is calculated along the basis of effective carpet area of the property. A capital value-based system for property tax calculation is used by the Pune Municipal Corporation.
The percentage of the actual value of the property which is based on the ready reckoner that is used to calculate stamp duty by the revenue department is known as the property tax.
Property tax = Tax Rate x Capital Value
Capital Value = Base Value x Built up area x Usage x Building type x Age factor x Floor factor
The Pune Municipal Corporation permits users to derive calculated property tax on the online portal.
