MCD Property Tax – Calculating Tax, Online Payment, Past Payment Receipts & Other Relevant Info

by Shiv Kukreja on June 29, 2016

in Tax

I just ended up paying MCD property tax (also called house tax) for our residential property in South Delhi. As there were various links which I required to calculate the tax, make online payment, print the payment receipts and check previous years’ tax payments, I thought of writing this post to help property owners in Delhi in this process.

First of all, June 30, 2016 is the last date for availing 15% tax rebate benefit which MCD offers to the property owners in Delhi on lump sum tax payments. So, if you haven’t paid your property tax till date, do it now to avail this 15% rebate.

If you are paying your property tax for the first time, it might be a time consuming job for you. But, if you have gone through such an exercise in any of the previous years, then I think it should not take more than 5 minutes for you to do it again with the help of various links I am going to share here in this post.

3 Municipal Corporations in Delhi – As of today, Delhi has got divided into three municipalities – South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC). But, only SDMC and EDMC are allowing their residents to pay their property tax online. Due to its ongoing website maintenance work, NDMC has suspended its online payment facility for some time. But, residents falling under North MCD can still avail tax rebate by making their tax payments through the offline mode visiting the MCD office in their respective areas.

Know Your Jurisdiction – In order to calculate & pay your tax, you need to first know the municipality under which your colony falls. Here is the link to the website of MCD through which you can get to know your jurisdiction. As mentioned above, there are three municipalities in Delhi and you’ll find the list of colonies under these three zones – SDMC, NDMC and EDMC.

Calculating Property Tax – Here is the link to the Delhi Government’s website through which you can calculate and pay your property tax – Link.

Click on Calculate Your House Tax on the link pasted above and choose your municipality under which your area falls – South Delhi Municipal Corporation or East Delhi Municipal Corporation. You will find various terms & conditions listed there, which you can read if you have time to do so. Just check the T&C box there and click on the tab to pay your property tax for the current financial year 2016-17.

Property ID – For you to pay your property tax online, you need to have a Property ID or Ledger Folio Number, which gets provided by the respective municipal corporations to their residents. You can find your Property ID on your previous years’ property tax challans/receipts.

However, even if you don’t have a property id or ledger folio number, you can still pay your tax directly through these links – SDMC, NDMC and EDMC.

UPIC Cards – To make the process easier, SDMC had started allotting Unique Property Identification Codes (UPIC) to the property owners in December 2015. While making your property tax payment this year, you’ll find an additional charge of Rs. 35 for a UPIC card. These UPIC cards will be issued to you this year and get delivered to your address in the coming days.

Use Factor & Property Tax Rates – Now you need to enter your Property ID in the space provided and it will take you to the page where you need to enter your personal details and property details. Residential and self-occupied properties will attract lower tax and commercial and let out properties will attract higher tax.

Also, you’ll have to pay a higher tax if your property falls in a posh urban area as compared to a rural area. Colonies/Areas have been categorised in eight different categories, from A to H, based on their locations and amenities available around. Property owners in Category A areas will have to pay a higher property tax as compared to Category B areas and likewise.

Here are the links to find the Use Factors and Property Tax Rates as per the end use of the property and its location – SDMC, NDMC and EDMC.

Finally, the property tax you need to pay will depend on the Annual Value of your property. Here is the formula for calculating the annual value:

Annual Value = Covered Area * Unit Area Value * Age Factor * Use Factor * Structure Factor * Occupancy Factor

Don’t get intimidated with this formula. You are not required to memorise this formula or do any manual calculations. You just need to put some basic details of your property and the system will do the harder work on its own. It will calculate the annual value, the amount of rebate, online payment rebate and all other figures as soon as you provide the inputs.

30% Rebate to Senior Citizens, Women, Physically Challenged & Ex-Servicemen – There are certain tax rebates which these corporations offer to certain categories of property owners. Here is the table having those categories of property owners:


Once the tax gets calculated, you just need to select the payment method and pay the tax and you are done. After the tax is paid, you’ll be asked to close the page as soon as possible. But, you would like to have a receipt/acknowledgement for the tax payment made. Don’t worry, here is the link to print your payment receipt – Payment Receipts Link

I hope this post makes it easy for you to pay your property tax online in Delhi. Please share it here if you have any query regarding property tax calculation or its payment or if you have any suggestion to make it an easier process for the property owners in Delhi.

#Niveza #Review on MCD Property Tax ::
Paying your property tax in Delhi isn’t as cumbersome or annoying as you may think it is. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), has made it really simple to make payments through their online portal. The department has been trifurcated into the North Delhi Municipal Corporation, East Delhi Municipal Corporation and South Delhi Municipal Corporation to ensure smooth and easy transactions, and to lower the burden of administration that falls on just one department.

Thanks for your article on Delhi MCD tax payment. It was quite helpful.

I have a query and I hope if you could provide me your insights to it. One of my relative owns a property in North Delhi and due to death of the important family member, they were not able to pay property taxes for past couple of years. They tried to pay arrears online but the online portal is not showing up any Arrears. It is showing amount for current FY only.

What should they do to pay the arrears?

JUG LAL May 1, 2017 at 11:03 AM

After entering property I’d my property details open up. When I try to pay I am prompted to fill area of plot under vacant land. Then I am prompted to fill constructed area under vacant land. This far it is easy as my plot area and constructed area are the same. But problem arises when I am prompted to fill vacant land use under vacant land. As I have no vacant land I am not succeeding in paying my property tax in Delhi


Ashok May 29, 2017 at 9:09 AM

Thanks for the detailed information! Quite helpful.

It is a shame though, as expected from a government department, that the website and online property tax payment system does not allow those who have paid one-time tax in the past to file their property tax online!

And I thought India had the best software minds in the world! Perhapd Delhi Govt. doesn’t !!!

Very useful information. Thank you

By mistake last year I paid twice, and got a letter confirming receipt of both amounts. The relevant authority has confirmed that the extra amount will be used to set off the 2017-18 payment – except that I cant find any such online option for adjustment of extra paid previously.

How do I adjust this previously paid amount and pay the remaining balance due to square off current accounts?

Please advise.
