BANGALORE: Tired of standing in serpentine queues at BBMP offices and BangaloreOnecentres to pay property tax? Now you can pay at computerized kiosks in several banks.

BBMP on August 19 inaugurated the first such facility at the IDBI Bank branch on Mission Road. Similar ones will be replicated in various nationalized and private banks.

Mayor D Venkatesh Murthy said the service will be thrown open to the public in phases, with the first covering 50 branches (IDBI Bank and Corporation Bank). In the second phase, 150 more bank branches will be covered by the second week of September. The third and the final phase will be in place by October under which 350 bank branches will facilitate the payment of property tax, he added.

BBMP officials said the idea is to facilitate smooth transaction of property tax payments and minimize rush. The service has been introduced keeping in mind that not everybody can make payments via net banking. Bank branches are an easy alternative for those who don’t prefer online transactions, said a senior BBMP official.

Palike officials said taxpayers will be given computerized receipts at banks.

Banks BBMP has tied up with

IDBI, Corporation Bank, Canara Bank, Indian Overseas Bank, ICICI Bank, HDFC, YES Bank, Axis Bank, Kotak Mahindra, Indian Bank, SBI, Maharashtra Bank, Indusind Bank.
