Addressing presspersons before launching the online portal on Monday, Mayor Premananda Shetty said that tax payers can log on to to get details and make payment.

First, a tax payer will have to register on the portal with his mobile number and enter an OTP sent to him. Then, he has to check if the property has undergone land conversion.

In case of land conversion, he can enter details of property given towards road expansion.

Later, he can check for building number, khata number, property identity, address of the property owner and enter other significant information. If tenants are residing in one’s property, their details are to be entered.

Then, he can select the road where his property stands and select property type, i.e., commercial, residential or non-commercial.

Later, he can enter the accurate details of property and building area and all the other required details. He can re-check information on building and floor while also verifying tax payment amount. One can use net banking, debit card, Google Pay, PhonePe and bank transfer options to initiate payment.

The Mayor said that after entering the required details, one can also pay taxes offline after collecting challans to make the payment in a bank.

Commissioner of the corporation Akshy Sridhar said that citizens can contact respective zonal commissioners or tax officers for more information on online tax payment services.

Citizens paying taxes online will receive complete information about previous payments along with pending and upcoming payments.

The portal has been updated with all property categories, including residential, commercial and non-commercial buildings across the corporation limits.

Tax payment amount and other details will be displayed as per ward-wise building numbers.

The corporation commissioner said that the calculations are fully computerised, leaving no scope for error in billing amounts. This will provide ease of access to the citizens.

The helpline is Ph: 6364464116.

Mr. Shetty said that if tax payers have any suggestions or if they come across any issues while filing tax on the portal, they can inform the corporation which will correct them.

The Mayor said that the corporation will conduct a re-survey of property starting next week. New property identified will be integrated with the portal later.
