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 2: Determine the current rent-per-square-foot in the market for similar properties in your area if the property is self-occupied. If you’ve rented the property out, you must consider the rent per square foot as stated in the rental agreement. This value is your Monthly Rental Value (MRV) per square foot.
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.
|Monthly Rental Value||General Tax||Conservancy Tax||Lighting Tax||Drainage Tax||Total|
|Up to Rs.50||Exempt||Exempt||Exempt||Exempt||Exempt|
|Rs.51 – Rs.100||2.00%||9.00%||3.00%||3.00%||17.00%|
|Rs.101 – Rs.200||4.00%||9.00%||3.00%||3.00%||19.00%|
|Rs.201 – Rs.300||7.00%||9.00%||3.00%||3.00%||22.00%|
|Rs.300 and above||15.00%||9.00%||3.00%||3.00%||30.00%|
