  1. Dear Mr. Prakash,
    please help on my concern.

    I have an apartment in CV Ramannagar that I occupied in 2006. I paid tax using manual method till 2008-09 (before online system came in force). In 2008-09 tax receipt, my Property ID had last 3 digit missing (which is for flat no.). This I didn’t notice then. In 2009-10, when I entered my SAS Application no. of 2008-09, I got incorrect PID and owner name as UNKNOWN. I still paid the tax using online method in 2009-10 and 2010-11. I wrote my correct correspondence address in online form while paying the tax. In 2011-12, when I checked in online, owner name shown is someone else. This time I paid by visiting BBMP help centre. Tax receipt is issued in someone else name and with incorrrect PID. They refused to change the name and issue manual receipts.

    In February this year, I gave an written application to Asst Revenue Officer (CV Ramannagar) requesting to correct PID in online system. I have been following up since then. Correction hasn’t happened yet. Please advise me what should I do. Should I wait for correction to happen before I pay tax for 2012-13? Khata issued has correct PID and tax paid receipts from 2005-06 to 2007-08 has correct PID mentioned as well.

    Thanks in advance

  2. Dear Mr.Nipun Chawda,

    This is a SELF ASSESSMENT SCHEME and whatever is submitted is accepted. Only on verification, they will issue notices, wherever there are mistakes.

    You are paying tax “FOR THE PROPERTY AND NOT FOR THE PERSON” Hence please check for the correct address.

    Each property will have PID numbers allotted by the BBMP and will be in the same order as it is at present throughout Bangalore.

  3. Dear Mr. Prakash,

    I find article quite useful,however would appreciate if you can guide me on following:
    I occupied a newly contructed flat in apartment complex during April 2011 and paid property tax (Form-V blue colour) manually in May 2011 for the year 2011-2012.

    As per property tax receipt provided by builder for 2008-2009 the application number fetches Vars builder as owner(Flats were built/sold by Ahad Builders on the land from Vars builders.These details are mentioned in sale deed with latest khata number in the name of Ahad builders).

    Kindly suggest:

    1.Is this OK that official records are still not in the name of Vars Builders.

    2.As earlier tax by Vars was paid on full land area (survey no.37/2)in what way the system/record accept property tax from 20 individual flat onwers on same common 2008-2009 SAS application number.
    Can I use 2008-2009 SAS application number to pay online property tax for 2012-2013.
    3.What can be done from our side to get PID allocated from BBMP.Will there be unique PID for each flat in apartment complex and what will be the format.
    Thanks for your answers in advance.

    Nipun Chawda

  4. Dear Mr.BVNBP,

    Please forget the name and concentrate on the address sir.

    You have to give in writing to (BBMP) THE REVENUE OFFICER of your ward mentioning the difference in the spelling and they will do it on the computer (Correction of DATA) and your further receipts & khata will bear the correct spelling.

    Please pay your tax, after getting the correction done to get the correct name, otherwise even the present receipt will be generated on the previous wrong spelling.

    Thanks for your approach.

  5. Dear Mr.Ravi & Arun,

    Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in replying due to a technical error, which ended in me not getting your postings.

    As I have received it just now, am replying as follows : This is a common problem faced by almost all the owners who have transacted since around 2004, as they have stopped issuing Khathas and regularisation is pending for the introduction of AKRAMA-SAKRAMA scheme.

    If you have gone through my previous reply, you would have not come out with this doubt. “TAX IS BEING PAID FOR THE PROPERTY AND NOT FOR THE PERSON”. Hence please check for the details of the property address.

    The first part of the information is correct, a new scheme of issuing SMART cards for property is on the anvil.

    The second part is incorrect, as public cannot change on-line. (Imagine what will happen if it comes true. Every property will be changed in everybody’s name daily.) IT WILL BE DONE BY BBMP ONLY.
