The administration has planned to send the bills to respective property owners on their registered e-mail addresses along with SMS alerts on their phone numbers.

The civic body has taken to the online medium to issue property tax bills for the new fiscal (2020-21) after the prevalent lockdown prevented it from printing and dispatching over 10.5 lakh of them.

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has now started uploading the bills in the property tax payment system which can be accessed through the civic body’s website. The PMC said a property owner could access his/her tax bill by accessing www.punecorporation.org or propertytax.punecorporation.org.

The administration has planned to send the bills to respective property owners on their registered e-mail addresses along with SMS alerts on their phone numbers. The printed bills would be dispatched only after the lockdown ended, a civic official said. 

As per records, the PMC has e-mail addresses of over 7.5 lakh property owners and about 9 lakh have provided their mobile numbers so far.

An official from the property tax department said, “The physical copies of the bills are dispatched every year in the first week of April. The administration has not been able to print and dispatch the bills in this challenging situation. So we are making elaborate arrangements for the citizens to find out their property tax amount for the year 2020-21.” 

“The property owners will have to follow some easy steps to get their bill details through the online system. Various online payment gateways are already functional. The civic body offers 5-10% discount on general tax if the entire property tax is paid in one go. We do not want citizens to lose on the discount which can be availed till May 31,” the official said. 

The property tax department said it has uploaded the fresh demands for the 2020-21 fiscal in their online system. The property owner would be able to get details of the property tax to be paid for the current year after logging into the system. 

Sources in the administration said a significant number of citizens were already opting for online options to pay the tax and the rest were likely to not face any hurdles.
