GHMC Property Tax amount from 1200 to 101
Initially, The CM thought of waiving property tax completely for those house owners paying Rs 1,000 per year. He, however, dropped the idea after GHMC Officials informed him that such a move requires amendment to GHMC Act.
According to existing GHMC Act, State Government can exempt any residential building from property tax if the annual rental value is just Rs 600.
At last, The decision to slash property tax prices has been taken by the Chief Minister. Officials were asked to work on implementation of the new property tax at the earliest.
