Paying Property Tax Online in Bangalore
The BBMP seems to be fairly well digitised. As a new comer (?) to Bangalore, I had initially faced some difficulty in finding my property id #.
So here are some tips to help you out.
Finding your Property Id Number
First click on the "To Know Your Property Tax Paid Details" link on the BBMP Home Page. As of writing this post, it was 1113.sasbbmp.com/Forms/frm_OnlinePayment_KnowYourPaidTaxDetails.aspx
Enter the Renewal Application No. (OR SAS 2008-09 Application No. OR Or PID No.). I used the Renewal Application No. because it was the easiest to located on the previous year's tax receipt => then click "FIND" => And then select the Owner and click "SHOW"
Note down the property details shown in the page. You will need them to make the payment. Use New PID No. if available! That seems to be the most updated one!
Make the payment
Go to the payment page => Pay Property Tax - BBMP
Click on the "Click Here" link or equivalent. It redirected me to the payment page. 1113.sasbbmp.com/Forms/frm_OnlinePayment_MainPage.aspx
As explained on the page, use FORM-IV if:
Form-IV should be filed by those property owners where there is no change either in the extent of built up area, usage (residential to non-residential or vice versa) or its occupancy (owner occupied to tenanted or vice-versa), or category from the Return filed in the previous year.
- As explained on the page, use FORM-V if:
Form-V should be filed by those property owners who have made changes either in the extent of built up area, usage (residential to non-residential or vice versa) or its occupancy (owner occupied to tenanted or vice-versa), or change in category or vacant land to new completed construction from the Return filed in the previous year.
CAUTION: If you have to use FORM-V, consult an expert or someone more knowledgable about property taxes (than me! :-))
My case was straightforward, so lets roll with FORM-IV. Click the link for the year the tax needs to be paid (Year 2015-16 in my case. CAUTION. CHECK YOUR YEAR!.)
- Enter your property details. Use New PID No now that you have the most updated details from the earlier steps! :-)
Select the Owner and go ahead and make the payment!
