Excess property tax to be adjusted next year 28.4.2016 deccanherald.com
Just when tax collection was gaining momentum, the BBMP has created confusion by suddenly restricting the increase in property tax to 20 per cent for residential and 25 per cent for commercial properties. While putting a capping on the hike, the Palike authorities clarified that money paid by taxpayers more than the 20% or 25% hike will be adjusted next year. The BBMP has no mechanism to refund the tax amount paid in excess to those selling their properties this year. A Palike official said, "The existing rules say that excess money should be adjusted next year. There is ambiguity in cases where a person has paid the tax in excess and is selling the property. We may have to devise a mechanism for it. We need to pay the money if the person demands it, but how to pay it is the question." The Palike, which imposes a penalty of 2% per month on tax defaulters when they fail to pay the tax within three months of the financial year, is silent on whether it will pay interest on the excess amount it has collected ...

City MLAs corner George over garbage crisis 28.4.2016 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru City MLAs on Thursday took Bengaluru Development Minister K J George to task over the city's garbage problem. The minister had convened a meeting of senior BBMP officials, city MLAs and the mayor. According to sources, MLAs cutting across party lines, including Aravind Limbavali and Byrathi Basavaraj, attacked the minister for not resolving the issue. Highlighting the crisis in their respective constituencies, they demanded that the minister resolve the problem at the earliest. Later speaking to the reporters, George defended the transfer of senior IAS officer T M Vijay Bhaskar, who was relieved of his charge as BWSSB chairman. An order to this effect was issued on Thursday. Terming his transfer as an administrative matter, George said he had nothing to do with the development and that it was Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's decision. He also said the government had initiated disciplinary action against KAS officer K Mathai and shunted him out from his post as Assistant Commissioner, BBMP. Vijaya ...

BBMP caps property tax hike 28.4.2016 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Thursday restricted the hike in property tax to 20% for residential properties and 25% for commercial entities, fearing a showdown with the BJP. Earlier, the 20-25% hike coupled with the revised taxation zones had resulted in 50-80% increase in property tax in the city. Now, irrespective of whatever calculations the BBMP's property tax portal throws up, people will only pay an additional 20-25% over the amount they had paid last year. Also, the BBMP has extended the early bird offer of 5% concession on property tax till end of May. Interestingly, the Palike has not withdrawn or altered the revised taxation zones. In short, this is a temporary relief to taxpayers as after three years, the taxes will be collected as per the revised zone rates. In that case, the abrupt increase in property tax may be somewhere between 50% and 100% or even more than that. The sudden U-turn has left nearly 2 lakh property owners, who have already paid their taxes, in a lurch, ...

BJP to besiege BBMP office over hike in property tax 27.4.2016 deccanherald.com
Terming the 'exorbitant hike' in the property tax as a big blow to the lower and the middle-class families owning properties in the city, the BJP has decided to stage a demonstration and lay siege to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike office on May 3. Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Rajajinagar BJP MLA and former urban development minister S Suresh Kumar said BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa would lead the agitation and all the BJP MLAs, with a large number of supporters, will swarm the BBMP office on May 3 if the hike was not rolled back. Kumar termed the hike unscientific and cited examples of 176% increase in the property tax in a residential building and 400% increase in some commercial buildings. "The BBMP has brought together slums and apartments in the same category in many areas due to the faulty zoning system. Such unscientific way of taxation has resulted in a drastic reduction in tax collection in April. Last year, the tax collection by the end of April was Rs 1,050 crore, ...
