You can use the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes to pay property tax and conversion charges to the three municipal corporations in Delhi till Friday midnight.

The North, South and East corporations have issued a circular, inviting the public to submit property tax and conversion charges till 12 midnight in old currency of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

“For the convenience of the depositors, we will be keeping all property tax and building departments open till midnight. Other necessary arrangements have been made at the zonal offices to avoid any chaos,” said senior official from the north corporation.

Staff at the civic agencies have been asked to maintain a record of people depositing money at cash counters. They will also keep details of currency notes.

“We have kept the upper limit for depositing cash at R5,000. Property or conversion charges of more than that amount will not be accepted in the form of old currency notes,” said senior SDMC official.

The decision was taken after a notification issued by the ministry of finance, Government of India, on November 10 allowing all central and state government, including local bodies, to accept the demonitised notes in the form of tax.
