  1. Dear Sir,

    During khata transfer of property , seller paid property tax.

    KHATA transfer was done with correct name , but in property tax receipt I observed that the name is misspelled.
    Please let me know if it is a problem .

    If I pay property tax next time (2012-2013) with correct name is that fine ? Or do I need to visit the branch and ask them to get the prvious receipt to be corrected

    Please share your suggestion on this.

  3. I also have similar issue as Arun. I have Khataha in my name but as per BBMP database still it is showing the previous owner name. Past 2 years I have been paying tax in the same name since BBMP people said it will take time to get updated in database. Could you please explain the procedure to change the name?

  4. I have bought a 30×40 land in nov 2009, all the tax, EC everything up to date as it was the first owner. Later after I bought this land and got both BDA/BBMP Khataha transferred to my name, and I am clearly the second owner in the new Encumbrance certificate. I paid tax for 2010-11, 2011-12 from BBMP office under my name. But still when i go for paying tax in bangalore one, its showing the first owners name. So I am forced to go to bbmp office and pay the tax. They will strike the old owner name and add my name manually in the paid receipt. Any idea when this issue will be resolved. I tried to contact BBMP office and they said the updation is under process and a new scheme is coming, so that owner can update details online themselves. I am worried…pls advice.

  5. Dear Mr.Vijay Kumar K.R.,
    It is separate departments of BBMP, for collection of Tax and updation of data. I am sure your khatha might not have been issued computerised, but hand written. Your property comes under the new areas included to BBMP, where computers are not in total applicability.
    The staff at the tax collection point have no access for changing any data and when such is the case, how can you change it by yourself? If that provision is made, you will find different properties changed to different names by different people.
    All you can do is insist on a hand written receipt, where they can do it in your name.
    Remember, you pay tax for the property and NOT for the person. It hardly makes any difference, in whose ever name the receipt is.
    Hope it is clear now.
    Thanks

  6. Hi Prakash,

    I read your article at http://bangalore.citizenmatters.in/articles/view/1953-bbmp-property-tax-payment-2010-11 and found it very useful. However I have still the following issue:

    I have purchased a vacant site and the registration done on 18th Nov 2010. I also got the Khata transfered to my name on 29th Nov 2010. The property details are as mentioned below:
    Site No: 455
    Katha property no: 455/455
    Balaji HBCS,
    Vajarahalli,
    Bangalore.

    When I go to online property tax to pay the property tax for the year 2011-2012, in the onwer field still the previous owner name is shown and I am not able to edit it to my name. I request you to let me know the process to get the name changed to my in the property tax system.

    The receipt numbers for the previous years tax paid are as follows:
    1723442 for 2008-2009
    1397015 for 2009-2010
    5723042 for 2010-2011

    I also went to BBMP office situated at Talghattapura, Kanakapura Road to rectify issue but the staff at the office mentioned that this is not in their control.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jayakumar K P

  11. Dear Prakash,

    Thanks for putting up such an informative site.

    I have paid my Property tax for 2010-11 through an agent sitting in Bangalore-One office at KR-Puram in November 2010.
    But he hasn’t given me the receipt since then saying the receipt book is out of stock. Till today he hasn’t provided it.
    Whom should I contact to get the receipt ?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Sujesh

  12. Dear Mr.Mohammed Irshad,

    The name of the property changes only when the KHATHA is transferred and not just by registering the deed. This entitles to change the khatha from the previous owner to your name. Till such time, in the records of BBMP, it will be previous owner name prevailing and you can pay the tax even in his name also which is legal.

    No duel payments is supposed to be made for changing the name, but to apply for a change of KHATHA.

    Sorry for the delay in replying due to some technical error of the system and your query failed to reach me.

  13. Dear Mr.Suresh,

    You can pay the tax for the entire period, but not on-line as the system adopted does not accept for previous years.

    You have to make physical payment. You have to purchase application forms for the year 2008-09, 2009-10 & 2010-11 (Form IV) and fill-up details as per explained in step by step calculation and further guidelines for the other years and make payment with separate cheques for each application. As for as location for payment is concerned, please refer to the TOI referred OR on website.

When i tried to pay the tax for 10-11 online, i found the previous owner’s name is still in records.

Pl guide, is it true, why should tax be paid twice for same property and what is the procedure to change in my name

  16. Dear Madam,
    You are right, there is a penalty for late payments. To guide perfectly, please furnish the details of the property with the nature and type, Converted OR revenue, direct purchase OR through developers, comes under corporation limits OR panchayats etc.

  17. from PREETHY (preethy.mathew@airbus.com)

    Is property tax applicable on land purchased in Mysore/Blore ? If so, how do we make these payments. We live abroad were not aware of this during the purchase, since we have missed out on past payment is there a penalty ?

  18. Dear Venu,
    Can you please furnish the full details of your act? as to what / which form you filled last year and at present as well as your statement “not activated for individual flats” has no relevance.

  19. Hello Mr. Prakas,

    We have bought a new flat from the builder. last yra we paid teh tax manually. This ye I paid through online, but latter realised that its not activated for individual flats. I ahev already paid the money through online. Pls let me know the procedure to map it to my flat.

    Thx,
    Venu

  20. Dear Ashwin,
    The official procedure is lengthy. You can approach either the BBMP office with your PIN / Khatha / Survey # as the case maybe and obtain by greasing the palms. Other way is to go on the BBMP web and get details of payment with the help of the above number available in your registered document.

  21. Hello Mr. Prakash,

    Thanks for this detailed and very informational post – I am facing a complication in paying the property tax. I purchased the house as a resale from the previous owner in 2009 end. At the time of sale, the previous owner paid tax and got the katha issued in his name, which we promptly surrendered to register the sale in my name.

    He doesn’t have a copy of the receipt or application number for the property tax paid, is there a way to get the details from any BBMP offices ?

  22. Dear SP Madam,
    The question of who should pay is SECONDARY here. The PRIMARY aspect is WHAT is to be paid. You have mentioned that the flats have been alloted in Sep ’09 and hence the tax for building has to be paid from 2nd half of 2009-10 by you. But without the full details of as to when occupancy certificate is issued and tax for the year 2008-09 has been paid for site OR for building, I am not in a position to guide you.

    Hence please forward the full details.

    ThanQ

  23. Hello Mr. Prakash,

    I have read your articles & always found them very informative. I am in need of advice & some info, if you could help to sort them out.

    As I have got my new flat registered in the month of Sep 2009 & as the flats were started being handed by the builder from Sep’09 onwards only, should the builder be paying the property tax for the year 2009-10 for the land & the property, as one tax or should the flat owners be paying individually, irrespective of the fact when we have occupied within the period of Apr 2009 – Mar 2010?

    The builder has paid the property tax for the year 2008-2009 & he is asking us to pay for our individual flats with the dues for the year 2009-2010.

    Looking forward to your guidance on the same at the earliest, as time is ticking away & we are not able to clear the property tax for this present year, till the time we are not sorting out that of the last year.

    Regards,

  24. Dear Mr.SS,

    Please go through all the comments along with the subject matter and this aspect was discussed in large and has been explained for the benefit of large by me.

  25. I met Mr.Chandrasekar, DC Revenue to get clarifications on Clause No.3 of Instructions to Tax Payers for the year 2010-11 in Form iv . It states that Depreciation cannot be claimed for 2009-10 and 2010-11, as depreciation can be claimed once in the Block Period ie 2008-11.
    What I am told by him was that I should fill necessary details as in 2008-09 ,ie I pay the same tax for all the 3 years in the Block period.
    But that takes into account the depreciation for each of the the 3 years.
    As a faithful tax payer I paid the Tax for 2009-10 excluding the depreciation. I was told by DC that I can deduct the excess amount paid in the previous year now in 2010-11, which I did.
    Can anyone explain this anomaly between the Instructions clause and the actual practice?
