BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) will soon start receiving holding tax at Jana Seba Kendras, online service platforms which help people pay different user fee.

This is aimed at expediting revenue collection. Since November , BMC has been collecting holding tax with the help of handheld device, which runs on a global positioning system-enabled software. After introduction of the device, the civic body was able to cut down on paperwork to a great extent.

To begin with, BMC will collect holding tax online at Chandrasekharpur, official sources said.

According to the plan, all 12 Jana Seba Kendras will be provided with details regarding holding tax numbers and dues. The data will be uploaded in the web portal, through which citizens are paying different user fee. The Odisha e-governance Services Limited (OeSL), which has designed the software for the kendras, will incorporate the holding tax data.

"Since BMC is yet to have its own online facility, OeSL will collect holding tax. Citizens will have to furnish the holding number to know their dues," said BMC deputy commissioner Subhransu Mishra. He said OeSL would charge Rs 10 for a transaction.

"In the next phase, we will extend the facility to other areas of the city. The handheld device will also be linked to the website so that tax collected through the device will be reflected there," added Mishra.
