Brief History & Back-Ground

The main source of internal revenue of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation is property taxes. As per Section 109(2) of the DMC Act, on or before the 15th day of February of each year the North Delhi Municipal Corporation has to determine rates at which the property taxes shall be levied.
Prior to the amendment in DMC Act, 1957 by DMC (Amendment) Act, 2003, properties were taxed on the basis of annual rent at which such land or building was reasonably expected to be let out from year to year basis. The Unit Area based system, which was notified and came into force from 1.8.2003 is implemented from 1.4.2004. Property owners can self assess their tax and submit the returns in the form available with all the Zonal Offices and website.
