Property Tax 2012-13 – Pay with 5 Clicks!

by Vishnu

Dear Bangalore Home Owners, you may be aware that BBMP Property Tax payment for 2012-2013 is available Online, and if paid before 30-April-2012, you avail a 5% Discount. Okay, that’s not a monumental figure, but hey, it’s a discount on Tax!

The Online Process is very easy, here is a 5 step guide to paying Property Tax Online for 2012-2013.

Please note Online Payment is available only for Form-IV, i.e., for cases where there are no changes in the Property compared to last year – in the built up area, occupancy type etc.  For the rest of the cases, you may have to pay at the BBMP Property Tax collection centers.

To start with the Property Tax payment,

1. Go to this link:

In this page you have to fill either  the Application Number of 2008-2009 filing or the PID number.  On clicking on “Click Here”, the Property Owner’s Name will show up.

Click on Continue.

2. The next screen will come completely pre-populated. You only have to fill your Phone Number.

The Tax Amount will be same as last year PLUS Solid Waste Management cess, which will be extra.

Click on “Online Payment”.

3. At this point you will see your Application Number.

4. In the Next Screen you can see the IDBI Payment Gateway

Enter your Card Details, enter your Secure Code in the next screen, and you are done!

Your Acknowledgement and Receipt is ready!

Where do I find 2008-09 SAS application no or old PID No for paying Tax online ?
I have a flat in Brigade Metropolis,

The Application Number is available on your Application form filled for paying Tax for year 2008-2009 – if you are paying from that year. Please check if Brigade Metropolis belongs to the old BBMP areas, in which case you will have a PID – should be present in the Receipt of the last Property Tax payment. In case Brigade Metropolis is not part of old BBMP Areas, you will be allotted the new GIS based PID this year – it will be part of this year’s Property Tax Receipt.

Hey, would like to know how this is suppose to be done for the first time owners/payers.

san April 13, 2012 - 7:37 pm

The Online System seems to work only if you have paid Property Tax previously and the data is available Online. So for first time payers, you may have to take the offline route – the BBMP centers.

For those who registered their properties after 1st April, 2009, they would not have any application number of 2008 – 09. But they can use Revenue Survey No. or Khata No. or old PID no. depending on the property locations and as given by the revenue authorities in their property details document.
New PID will be allotted only after any of the above numbers are entered in the computerisation process , especially for those who are recently included in the BBMP list. Newcomers have to go to their respective ward offices to fill the form IV and pay the taxes for this year.

I am owner of a flat at Haralur Road, off Sarjapur Road & paid Property Tax manually for the last 3 years i.e. upto 2011-12. Our Katha is still pending due to some OC clearance issue between the builder & Civil Defense. However, the flats have been occupied & used for about 5 years now.

Is there anyway to pay on-line? It will be much easier as I live in Sharjah, U.A.E.

Sharing some info – For 2008-09, it’s only possible to physically go and pay your tax at your BBMP office. Subsequently using the application number of 2008-09, payments for further years can be done. If you would go to BBMP office, they would at least ask you to make the payments of 2008-09, 09-10, 10-11, 11-12 then-and-there with applicable penalty. For 12-13, then you could make payment using application number from the receipt of 08-09, or make the payment at BBMP Office itself. You don’t need to have a Khata to pay tax. Having a registration for property is sufficient. Important thing you need to have is the application form number for 2008-09, which is only possible by personal visit. (I am not sure about PID. For my apartment, I don’t see a PID)

Great Help. First time, I paid my prop tax online and it is very easy as you explained above.
Thanks a lot…

Rohit April 16, 2012 - 12:10 pm

Thanks for the wonderful writeup. It took me just 3 minutes to fill it up and pay the tax.. with screenshots. In all the past years, I used to spend a day lining up before the BBMP tax office. Also had to give a bakshish to the clerk who insisted that filling the form in the local language was mandatory and condescended to help me with it. They also often made me run around for forms as they didn’t have any. The bakshish was little but thinking about paying it made me feel very bad so much so that this year – after Anna’s wakeup call that I think I subconsciously avoided going back to that BBMP office. Is there anyway to thank the mastermind behind this initiative ? His initiative coupled with your guide is a great way to pay one’s dues, catalyze BBMP revenues and have peace of mind.

Hello Rohit, Prasanth, Aditya and everyone who has written back saying this post has been of help – we are very happy to know that. Rohit, the credit for the Payment site of course goes to BBMP. We will find a way to let them know how much it is appreciated.

It will definitely be a happy day when more such Govt. Transactions are brought online so any chance of corruption can be eliminated.

William Pereira April 17, 2012 - 5:30 pm

Hi San et All, What a relief to pay online! Sure saved me a whole day + the agony at the hands of a few as usual. I just paid online and obtained a “Thank You for the Payment – Paid Receipt” as shown in the second last screen above. Can you please let me know if one is able to obtain a proper full BBMP print-out receipt online as per the last screen above. Thanks

I have paid my property tax using this web site over the past 2 years and things have worked pretty well. This year I see that clicking on “Online payment” brings me back to the Step 2 above and does not give an application number. Is anybody else facing this issue?
