MCC property tax payment: A citizen’s woes

April 15, 2021


The Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has done it again. Every year its bureaucratic structure takes a toll on poor citizens who struggle in hot sun to pay the property tax.

I already visited their Zonal Office in Sharadadevinagar. The website it has created for calculation and payment of taxes failed in every step.

Every one, including their employees, the citizens were seen cursing it. Standing in long queues in the bank counter in its premises, senior citizens had a harrowing time.

On the second visit I was advised to visit MysuruOne to make the payment. They could not collect the tax as the server would not respond. Today (Monday) I called them and was assured of success.

By the time I reached their office, the server was down. I do not know why MCC cannot generate the SAS form (at least where there are no disputes). It can give a list of PID No., Name of owner and Tax payable to the bank for payment of tax without waiting for online connectivity for every payment. It can easily reconcile the payment received on the basis of PID Nos.

MCC should tie up with a good bank so that citizens can pay the tax in the nearest branch. This would solve the problem for nearly 90% to 95% of people who want to pay tax promptly and without any harassment.

I request the Commissioner, MCC to take note of this and make suitable arrangements.

    MCC should do this, MCC should do that, at the end MCC cannot think beyond harrasing public. Their cleaning tax for no construction property owners is a scam of the century. Seeing this even MUDA have been collecting. What sort of cleaning can MCC or Muda do when property owners have secured their property by having a compound, or barbed wire fence? Are they planning to destroy these fence for entry of JCB for cleaning purpose? Well what answer can you get from these dimwits??? All MCC or MUDA commisssioners lack common sense, and they are Aya Ram, Gaya Ram!!!

    Can any one tell how can a property owner ( who has registration, title deeds, Khata etc ) pay on line. Assume the owner is located in New Delhi . Does he or she need to come to Mysuru – to collect the PID number from the MCC office? Is this practical?
    Simple steps can increase revenue /tax collection.

    I Support this statement by Mr AV Prasanna. I had got my site cleaned 1 year back by a JCB for Rs 1800. MCC last year charged me Rs 4800 -3 Times the amount. This is a Big Scam. Can the Housing Ministry/MCC Commissioner look into this and take action immdtly. Also JCB destroys the pavement construction done roundthe site. Please stop this. Instead req ste owners to clean the site once in a year and produce a photo + Certificate to MCC/MUDA so that this scam can be stopped.
