  1. MCD claims to have name of some defaulters of property tax and is showing a list of defaulters also on its web site.However even though the amounts liable to be paid are substantial .but no action seems to have been taken and to encourage the defaulters to pay their outstandings and to collect the amounts of arrears ,from time to time various rebates /schemes are offered to defaulters.This way the assessees who have paid their dues regularly in time ,feel cheated as ultimately the defaulters end up getting more benefits in terms of rebate as compared to house owners ,who have paid the dues in time.In view of same, Govt should consider giving more benefit/rebate to regular tax payers keeping in view their past record of payments in time.That may encourage the people who take the making of payment of tax lightly, to make the payments in time.

    1. Totally agree with you. Government should give incentive to pay regularly rather than giving escape route to defaulters. But as you know Government being government is highly inefficient!

  2. I have filed online for 2013-2012, but 2012-2011 and 2011-2012 is not paid. I don’t find any link on site to file the tax for 2011-2012 and 2012-2013. Can you help?
