GHMC Residential Property Tax Calculation

To calculate your residential property tax, follow the following steps:

Step 1: Measure your plinth area (PA). The plinth area is the total built-up area, which includes all covered areas including balconies and garages.

Step 3: Calculate your residential property tax with this formula:

Annual Property Tax for Residential Property = PA x MRV (per sq.ft.) x 12 x (0.17 – 0.30) depending on the monthly rental value in the below table – 10% depreciation + 8% library cess.
