DELHI: The MCG is offering special rebates on pending property tax amounts to residents who choose to make their payments before December 10. According to officials, discounts of up to 30% will be offered to property owners within this grace period.
“Plot owners can avail 30% rebate on property tax pending for up to 2012-13, and 10% rebate on the tax that’s pending for 2013-14,” said an MCG official. The tax payments can be made online, on the MCG’s official portal, as well as at any of the several CFCs – citizen facility centres – set up by the corporation in Gurgaon, which are to remain open on the weekends.
Property tax collection has only recently resumed in Gurgaon, after a long-drawn period of abeyance that started sometime in June and ended in October. A government survey, to ‘rationalize’ property tax calculation formula, was what led to the suspension of the tax-collection drive.
The MCG has collected over Rs 138 crore in property tax in this financial year.
