Navi Mumbai has its property tax collected by the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation which came into being on January 1st 1992. Upon coming into effect, it took over the Provisions assigned to the Bombay Provincial Municipal Corporation and is responsible for the collection of property tax which is calculated using the rateable value of the property. Prior to the formation of NMMC, the property tax was collected in an ineffective manner by Gram Panchayats. The NMMC has now standardized the collection of property tax and has ensured a smooth and hassle free mode in which taxpayers can not only pay property tax but also pay other utilities such as water bills.
