Bengaluru Civic Body Chases Rs.7.111 Bn in Unpaid Property Taxes

The Bengaluru civic body is actively pursuing unpaid property taxes amounting to ?7.11 billion from more than 3.60 lakh properties across the city. This massive sum reflects a substantial accumulation of outstanding dues owed to the municipal authorities.

According to recent reports, despite repeated reminders and notices, a large number of property owners have yet to settle their tax obligations. This delay has prompted intensified efforts by the civic body to recover these funds, crucial for sustaining urban infrastructure and service provisions.

Officials have underscored the importance of timely tax payments in supporting essential civic amenities such as road maintenance, waste management, and public health services. The collection of overdue taxes is viewed as essential for maintaining and improving the quality of life in Bengaluru.

The civic body has initiated stringent measures to streamline the tax collection process and enhance compliance among property owners. This includes leveraging technology and outreach programs to facilitate easier payment options and improve transparency in financial transactions.

Efforts are ongoing to expedite the recovery of outstanding dues while ensuring equitable enforcement across all segments of the property-owning community. The Bengaluru civic authorities remain committed to enforcing tax regulations effectively and responsibly, aiming to bolster the city's fiscal health and sustainability in the long term.
