Pay Bangalore Property Tax or lose assets: BBMP

Pay Bangalore property tax or lose assets: BBMP


BENGALURU: Property tax defaulters beware. N Manjunath Prasad, commissioner of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike, said the BBMP will issue notices to tax defaulters from April 1 with a 15-day time to pay up the Bangalore property tax arrears. If defaulters fail to pay BBMP property tax till the deadline, assets such as furniture and other movable items will be confiscated from their houses or commercial establishments.

BBMP's deputy commissioner (revenue) Venkatachalapathy M said the BBMP has the power to confiscate moveable properties like furniture under the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976. Though immovable properties cannot be seized. As per BBMP rules, a person is declared an offender if he has not paid property tax for the previous year. Venkata chalapathy said, "As per estimates, taxes are due from at least, 20,000 properties from one year to many years. Net revenues would be around Rs 400 crore if defaulters pay up the dues on time.

As most properties in Bangalore have been mapped using the Geographic Information System (GIS) now, BBMP is confident of recovering Bangalore property tax dues.

According to BBMP, a system has been developed where BBMP zonal officials get updates on spatial details of tax defaulters on their smart phones. Now the revenue officers can't skip these people as previously the tax was evaded by defaulters due to laziness of officials. A total of 18.95 lakh properties has been mapped with GIS since June 2016, which is around 3 lakh higher than the 16 lakh BBMP database.

Now, this is the right time for property owners in Bengaluru who were evading tax payment to pay arrears of Bangalore property tax online. As the BBMP is also less of funds, BBMP's is totally correct in confiscating movable properties of defaulters as 20,000 properties are still evading payment of property tax in Bangalore since one year to several years. As BBMP has already mapped 18.95 lakh properties using the Geographic Information System, it is expected that BBMP will be able to recover around Rs. 300 to Rs. 400 Crores of funds and that would be utilised for the city's development.
