Under the Maharashtra Land Revenue Code 1966, the NA tax is imposed in the areas earlier marked as agricultural outside gaothans, where there is non-agricultural activity, and is levied over and above the property tax. This tax was negligible until February 2008, but the state government through a notification in 2009 decided to link it with the ready reckoner rate, which is decided by the government as per the market value.

While allotting government land in urban areas, where there is a development plan, the NA rate mentioned in the ready reckoner will apply. In rural areas, there is no NA rate for every survey number, instead there is a ready reckoner rate for the village, which also mentions the NA rate. The NA in such areas will be calculated based on the NA rate for the village and only 50% of the NA rate needs to paid for the allotment. However, if the land abuts a highway, then 100% of the NA rate of that village will be applicable.
