Owners of household properties in Gurugram are liable to give property tax to the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) each year. The MCG follows a secure system for property tax calculation that mainly takes into the record the size & use of the property.
The fee payable on properties in Gurugram is based on two factors – area and use. The MCG has given the following norms, to calculate property tax for residential properties:
|Area (in sq yards)||Rate (in Rs per sq yard)|
|Up to 300 sq yards||Rs 1 per sq yard|
|301 to 500 sq yards||Rs 4 per sq yard|
|501 to 1,000 sq yards||Rs 6 per sq yard|
|1,001 sq yards to 2 acres||Rs 7 per sq yard|
|More than 2 acres||Rs 10 per sq yard|
Property tax on vacant land (residential):
|Plot size||Rate (in Rs per sq yard)|
|Up to 100 sq yards||Exempted|
|101-500 sq yards||Rs 0.50 per sq yard|
|501 sq yards and above||Re 1 per sq yard|
- 100 per cent rebate is given to owners of self-occupied residential houses, who are serving defence/paramilitary force personnel and ex-service/ex-paramilitary force personnel or his/her spouse. This rebate is also applicable to families of deceased soldiers/ex-servicemen/ex-central paramilitary forces personnel, provided they do not have any other residential property in the state of Haryana and are residing in the property themselves and have not let out any portion of the house.
The best way to make your property tax payment is online, on the MCG website. When you enter your unique Property ID number or your name and address, you will be shown the amount that you need to pay. You can make this payment through internet banking, or with your debit/credit card.
The MCG also provides a self-assessment property tax form, in which you can follow the guidelines mentioned for each type of property and ascertain the amount that you need to pay. You can also pay your property tax manually at any of the MCG’s Citizen Facilitation Centres.
