For the convenience of public, the municipal corporation has come out with the online option to deposit property tax.
The links are available on MC's portal and the page can also be accessed at
The portal was opened for public on Sunday night and received overwhelming response on Day 1 with over 50 people making the payment online.


Talking to HT, commissioner MS Chattwal said, “The facility has been provided to the public at no extra cost. Our team is maintaining the whole process after getting the clearance from the audit officials of HDBC bank, who are our nodal partner for property tax collection.”

“Probably, we are the first one in the state to give online payment option to the residents and that too without charging extra," Chattwal said.

"Presently 20 camps are operating at different locations. Residents can also pay online using debit card or credit card of any bank and take print out of the receipt," he said.

"The application form and the model for calculation of property tax was already there on our portal. The online facility will not only reduce the rush at collection centers but also help check corruption," he said.

“The new tax regime is SAD-BJP alliance flagship scheme. The property tax is less than the house tax which was being charged earlier, which will go in favour of the alliance in the forthcoming parliamentary elections. We are also arranging camps on demand at different locations of the city," said mayor Sunil Jyoti.

Case too hot: Police probe a cover-up?

Summons to Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia by the Enforcement Directorate has raised questions on the probe by the Punjab Police into the multi-crore drug racket. Busted with the arrest of Anoop Singh Kahlon, an NRI, by the Fatehgarh Sahib police in March 2013, it led to the arrest of alleged kingpin Jagdish Bhola, a dismissed Punjab deputy superintendent of police (DSP), in November last year.
