BENGALURU:Online payment of property tax for flat and site owners of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) commenced on Wednesday without much fanfare. The facility was made public through a simple announcement on its website.

BDA Secretary Basavaraju told The New Indian Express, “We have started accepting online payments for property tax from Wednesday. It only takes two minutes to pay the tax through our portal. As of 10.30 pm, 21 people paid their property tax and `1,21,138 has been collected.”

To pay your property tax, visit the website and click on the red scroll ‘click here to pay online property tax’. Alternatively, you can visit the ‘What’s new’ section on the home page and click on the ‘property tax payment’ link under it.

The registration is very simple, explained a BDA official. “One has to enter the site number, property ID number and full name. When the data is verified, the system requests for your mobile number and email ID. A one-time password is sent to both.” After this is done, the property owner’s records are updated. “By logging in using the OTP, one can access details on tax to be paid and pay it instantly.”

While online payment of BBMP property tax is common, this is the first time BDA is launching online payment mode. A similar attempt a couple of years ago had failed to take off.

    The site does not seem to accept sites that are registered under two names (spouse's name and my name). Can someone respond if they are successful with multiple names. Tried all combinations with my name alone

    Very nice app and it is working satisfactorily. Earlier one has to go to designated bank branches that too after getting notices. The bank branches were situated to our disadvantage. With this app I paid the land tax online without any hassles. I thank BDA for their good initiative.

    The OTP is not sent to the E-mail . The PIN as per the BDA official statement is sent to both the Phone and the E-mail. Unfortunately the OTP is sent only to the cellphone and not the Email. Furthermore surprisingly ICICIBank is not covered under Netbanking. Paying property tax is still not possible because of these glaring errors. Instead of the OTP they can let the tax payer to create their own password and make the system Tax-Payer friendly or at least send the OTP to E-mail also.

      Property ID is the 10 digit no. mentioned in front of Sanketha in BDA property tax paid receipt. Site No. is also mentioned just above the Sanketha. The Name of the person should also be same as in the BDA Tax paid receipt.

      This is a very good inititative. Fantastic I paid my tax online in less than 5 mins The Poperty id is 10 Digit number ( Sanketh ) in the left hand box of your tax demand letter. Site number is niveshana sankhye just above the 10 digit id in the left had box of your tax demand letter. Also make sure the the name is the same as the demand notice including spaces and fullstops. This is very important.
