The citizens opting for self-registration of properties on the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s website will be eligible for a 5% discount on their general tax.
Smita Zagade, Deputy Commissioner of the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), told TOI that many unassessed properties were yet to be brought under the civic tax ambit and if the citizens registered such properties, it would save the civic body a lot of time.
Zagade said the civic body was also going to go ahead with the third-party survey of the residential, commercial and industrial properties in the coming days to identify the new and unassessed properties.
“One can get information on the property tax of the unassessed properties on the PCMC website. After the registration, the application will land with the respective ward officer, who will be able to assess the property and accordingly give the rectified tax amount,” she said, adding that the tax rebate would be given for the ongoing year only.
She said in the civic body’s earlier survey this year, the tax department had identified few unassessed properties on the campuses of some of the big companies, which owed huge tax amounts. The department got to know there were many other companies, which had similar unassessed properties. Hence, the special third-party survey was the need of the hour, she said.
