The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) is counted as one of the richest civic bodies, owing to a large number of multi-national manufacturing units that are functional in the area. The area has also gained prominence as a real estate neighborhood, as the workforce employed in these manufacturing units started buying houses in the region. As a result, a number of housing societies and townships came up in the area, for which the infrastructure is provided by the PCMC. Property owners need to pay half-yearly property tax to the corporation, which can be easily done online. The PCMC was one of the first civic bodies to collect property tax digitally. Follow this step-by-step guide, to understand how to pay the PCMC property tax.

PCMC property tax news
Recently, the PCMC reported a drop in revenue by 79% due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Collections reportedly fell from Rs 57 crores to Rs 11 crores, year-on-year, for the same period. The authority is also planning to delay the property tax hike proposal, as property owners have been demanding a waiver for this year, because of the economic hardships during COVID-19.
The Corporation had proposed a hike in property tax, to increase its revenue. Once sanctioned by the standing committee, there will be an increase of 2.5% in the tax slabs. According to the civic body, there are over 5 lakh properties in the area, which include commercial, residential and vacant plots. Since there was no hike in property tax after 2013-14, all properties established before 2007 will come under the new hike, once approved.
