The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation is soon going to commence a special campaign in regard with the property tax payment in the city. The civic body is also going to reconcile the date for the same as they have released the schedule for this process. All the taxpayers in the city are required to bring all the documents related to their residential, commercial, industrial and institutional properties up till date i.e. 2019-20.
The sector-wise data reconciliation will begin from 17th June till 9th August.
The property tax department of the Municipal Corporation urged the city residents to participate actively in this special campaign in order to reconcile their data related to payments, ownership, area and floors. Approximately the entire staff of the tax department is on duty to conduct this camp.
One of the officials said that according to the prepared schedule, the civic body has decided to cover 8-12 sectors that include villages and colonies in one week to serve the residents better. We will match the record bought by the property owners with our data and will sort the difference on the spot the official said.
The issue of property tax payment has been continuously raised by both the municipal councillors and the residents. This led to the setup of special campaign by the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation. According to the records of the tax branch at the civic body there are approximately 80,000 residential and 26,000 commercial properties.
The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation is taking services of a professional agency to maintain data record of all the properties that come under the tax ambit. The hired agency is also preparing the digital records with detailed information like covered area, construction area, location and more.
