Well last year’s experience of MCD online tax paying had went smoothly, this year was a little different, some minor glitches along the way.

Firstly MCD tells you that they issued you a password last year, my property tax receipt didnt have any password, people have suggested emailing MCD to get a password.

Anyway once you are through with registering and all, the new interface has the advantage of clubbing all your tax payments together, so you can take a print of your receipt any time you like. You might also be able to make multi property payments (not sure about it).

Anyway the payment methods multiplied this year, now you can pay online via Axis Bank gateway, HDFC Bank Gateway and ITZ Cash Cards. You can also pay with cheques by depositing them in select HDFC and Axis Bank Branches. But who uses a cheque when you got a credit card :P , they do charge a transaction fee though, to offset the gateway costs.

I paid with my HDFC Credit Card. The site does not support verified by VISA or Mastercard Secure Code which was disappointing to say the least. Verified by VISA and Mastercard Securecard add an extra layer of security to your transactions.

The payment went smoothly, but then the MCD site had another glitch. The receipt wasnt being generated, finally i realised the problem. The pdf receipt was being generated as a .do file, so i renamed it to .pdf and finally my property tax payment was complete online.

    Hello dear friend. Great to hear your experience for payment of property tax on MCD site. This really motivated me to share my experience as well for the payment. I paid my tax online and through itzcash card. The process was very smooth and very instant. It was without any hassles. Good work by MCD and itzcash card.

    Great to hear that, but why would you want to pay via a prepaid card when you have so many other better options to pay with. I have heard only bad things about these prepaid cards.

    Hey I know that people do have negative perception towards the card concept. But trust me prepaid cash cards provide a hassle free experience. I started buying tickets from IRCTC through ItzCash Card and then paid my mobile bills through the same. My experience was good as I knew how much my pocket (card) size is. It helped to keep my budget under control. Post undertaking various transactions, which were successful i started paying property tax through itzcash card. So i as a user surely endorse it ;)

    MCD’s Helping Hand

    MCD notified under subhead “Helping Hand” (vide Times of India,Delhi of May 23, 2004) that: Any increase in incidence of tax in the case of residential premises would be capped at 2.5 times the tax assessed and paid in the previous year (2003-04), to avoid any hardship to Sr. citizens and other economically weaker sections.
    In the case of Munirka DDA Flats of 1974(self occupied, first floor with area of 87 sq m): Annual Tax assessed and paid upto 2003-04 = Rs. 400
    Under Unit Area Method Tax Payable = 40x87x0.7×0.9 =Rs. 2192.4
    Rebate (Sr. citizen) 30% of Rs.2192.4 = 657.7
    Net Tax payable … Rs. 1534.7
    Capped at Rs.400x(1 + 2.5) = Rs. 1400
    Tax due for 2009-10: Rs.1400 – 210 (15% rebate for early payment) = Rs.1190 and not Rs.1534.7 x 0.85 = Rs.1304 as being shown on computer generated challan for payment. Software used does not seem to take cognizance of MCD’s helping hand. MCD’s web site managers should take immediate action to generate challans with correct tax amount.
