This rebate is available only until December 31, 2017 and property owners should avail benefit of this scheme by timely payment of property taxes, and also refrain from any late payment penalty or any other forms of late payment punishments. The commissioner also informed that property tax can be paid online on the MCG website www.mcg.gov.in by clicking on the property tax icon and navigating to the ‘To search and pay property tax’ option.

Citizens who are not informed about the online property tax payment option can visit the citizen service centres at both the offices of MCG; situated in Infocity, Sector 34 and opposite Civil Hospital and pay their property tax. These centres accept property tax payment of up to Rs 5000 through cash, debit and credit cards and demand draft modes, Umashankar added.
