Aiming to make it easier for the property owners and the Karnal Municipal Corporation (MC) to keep a tab on the property tax status, the civic body is set to digitise the property tax branch. With this system, the manual assessment of the properties will be a thing of the past. Besides, all the property tax bills will have quick response (QR) codes, which will help the property owners to pay tax easily sitting at home.

As per officials, the receipts of the property bills whether paid at the office or the payment gateway will get directly uploaded to the property tax management system, which will further help the staff concerned to check the status of the bills.

"We have allotted a tender to a firm and it has started the process to digitise the property tax branch. The step is being initiated to minimise the manual working," said MC Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav.

He maintained that a web-based mechanism would be started for generating real-time demand and collection of the property tax.

Officials say the barcoding will help the property owners to even check the status of their previous bills, along with submitting any query related to their bills. "We will provide a payment window. With the help of QR codes, consumers can make their payments online. They can even file their query regarding their bills," he said.

The new system will make people aware of any rebate issued by the government and the waiver will automatically reflect in the generated bill, he said.

The property tax management system will directly be connected with authorised banks of the MC. Besides, the agency will also create a mechanism for auditors to conduct audit of the receipts, the commissioner added.
