No Access to Online Property Tax, Bangalore Residents Struggle

As the civic body has not completed the PIDĀ enrollmentĀ in the city, many of the Bangalore residents have no access to online property tax.

E-Payment of Property Tax was expected to reduce the overburden of the property owners to pay the tax. In many of the localities inside Bangalore, this has become successfully initiated. However there are a few cities where online property tax facility is not yet available.

Residents of Byatarayanapura, Dodda Bommasandra and Vidyaranyapura have no access to online property tax. Most of them are still paying their tax directly in the BBMP office.

As per the statistics, around 50000 people in Bangalore are not having the access to online property tax. An official of BBMP said that this inconvenience was due to the fact that the civic body could not enroll these areas.

The civic body officials were busy with the election work. Thus they could not provide PID numbers to nearly 50000 people in these areas.

The official said that the civic body is striving hard to provide this facility to the people of these areas as soon as possible.

The collection of property tax for the year 2013-14 has been started. While majority of the people prefer to pay tax online, there are some who never wishes to pay tax online.

They are not bothered about having no access to the online facility. They are ready to stand in long queues and pay the tax directly. This is one of the main features which the residents are looking for. They remain keen to avoid this long queue.

Online tax payment was initiated in Bangalore to take away the over burden of the property tax. As long as these residents are not having access to the system it will not take away their burden. The property owners in Bangalore expect to gain access to e-payment of property tax by next year at least.
