Kolkata is the capital of West Bengal and at one point was the hub of the East India Company and an important trading post. At present, it is one of India’s leading cities both culturally and economically. The Kolkata municipal corporation is responsible for the collection of property tax and other civic ordinances such as issue of death and birth certificate, assessment of land and many other functions. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation or KMC has their very own website that allows taxpayers to pay their property tax online while also being able to self-evaluate or assess the taxable amount of their land.
