Nagpur civic authority cuts 200% extra tax on rented properties

NMC-NagpurBy Accommodation Times Bureau


On Thursday, Mayor Nanda Jichkar announced during a conference that, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided not to levy any extra tax for rented properties. The relief has been given for both residential and commercial properties. Until now, rented properties were taxed at thrice the normal rate.

A public interest litigation (PIL) had been filed in Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court challenging the extra levy on the grounds that NMC did not provide any extra services to rented properties. The 200 percent difference between rented and owner-occupied or vacant properties had caused much heartburn among property owners.

Many citizens, who had leased their properties, asked their tenants to tell NMC staffers that they were relatives, to show on paper that property was not rented, for avoiding paying extra tax.
