Minister launches MUDA’s online property tax website

Minister launches MUDA’s online property tax website

July 17, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: In a move to mop-up revenues without any pilferages, the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has introduced an online portal to pay property tax and for document transfer. 

The dedicated website was officially inaugurated this morning by Urban Development Minister Byrathi Basavaraj who is on an inauguration and meeting spree in Mysuru since early morning yesterday and Mysuru District Minister S.T. Somashekar. 

For the record, even the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has already begun collecting property taxes online. Quick Response (QR) codes have been distributed to most of the citizens and geo-tagging has been done. This enables the residents to pay tax online without visiting Corporation Offices. Both MCC and MUDA have an online system of tax payment and also a digital system for other services in the realm of landed properties. 

For the payment of e-property tax to vacant MUDA sites, documents like Khatha, Aadhaar Card, photo identity card (Driving Licence, PAN Card, Voter ID and Bank passbook) are required along with the challan of tax paid in the previous year. The tax has to be paid according to the prices fixed by MUDA in the financial year 2018-2019. 

To pay property tax for houses, documents like building CR (Completion Report), house tax document (in case where the tax amount has been mentioned), Khatha, challan of tax paid previous year, Aadhaar Card and photo identity card (Driving Licence, PAN Card, Voter ID and Bank passbook) are required. The modes of payment include debit card, credit card, net banking and UPI payment including GPay and PhonePe.

The MUDA has proposed to levy online tax from 2021-22 and the software has been designed by Vijayapura-based Seminal Software.

1,13,000 tax payers 

Tax can be paid by all the 38,000 MUDA property owners of different dimensions at R.T.

In the financial year 2020-2021, Rs. 10 crore has been collected as property tax in the form of challans and in the 2021-2022, there is a projected target of collecting Rs. 25 crore to Rs. 30 crore through online only, said MUDA officials. 

Green cess, water bills online

MUDA has already introduced Green Cess — 2 percent of the total layout and building plan fee — for new building and layout plans from 2020-2021 and this too can be paid online. The MUDA will share a portion of it with the Forest Department. Water tax for MUDA projects taken up in Vijayanagar Fourth Stage also can be paid online where domestic consumers have to pay Rs. 175 per month and commercial users will have to shell out Rs. 300. A facility has been created on the website for property owners to upload original and authentic property documents. If at all fake and fabricated documents are uploaded, such properties will be seized and also the uploaders will face legal consequences, officials said.

    Hello Editors Desk,

    Firstly, I looked up “Google Play Store” and as of 19:35 today, there seems to be no App listed as “Mudamysuru”. Secondly, I am unable to view the website” – the question now is what have all the people on the podium upto, did they really launch the portal or are they still testing it?

    Lastly, I am a bit perplexed on why some one associated with MUDA inspite of having an official domain, would retain an e-mail with a different domain as “[email protected]

    Very well said. Right hand doesnot know what Left hand is doing. Thats our System , Politicians and Buerocrats. Hats off to them. Did they bother to check before coming and giving Lecture. Even now at night 10.30 website is not working. Some cheap softwrae firm has been given to develop the softwrae.

  3. A V Prasanna says:

    This will also have the same fate of MCC ON line tax site, ” Full of Confusion “. When Infosys are still struggling with proper implementation of Income tax web site for AY 2021-22, how can we expect this MUDA or MCC tax site to function? Software companies receive only 40% payment, rest goes for bribe. Hence citizens can have only 40% working of these sites and 60% of confusion and duplicate payments. For another two to three years for these sites to stablize, it is better to go to their office, get challan and make payment.

  4. Sudhakara Rai says:

    Owner names not changed to new owners who have purchased the sites and got there khata transfer certificates transfered to new owners by MUDA.This creates confusion to new owners as to how to pay vacant site tax online.MUDA may pl clarify this.

  5. Chandan says:

    The website on your article says “”. Has Star of Mysore confirmed the site works ? I can see that the site works. NOTE: it begins with HTTP and not HTTPS. This means any confidential information customer/tax payers enter is the http website is NOT secure and is open for hackers. I request SOM to verify the details before posting the article. This is almost as good as spreading fake news or enabling hackers get sensitive information. Borderline criminal. Please spread awareness or issue correction or get clarification from MUDA(if that is even possible).

  6. Dharma Rao says:

    To further add to this confusion, we have – could there have been a better approach of revisiting the existing portal and building the new module rather than having to reinvent the wheel and launching another non-secure portal?

    It is an apathy that citizens are always given or asked to chase multiple versions of truths.

    Not sure, if all this fanfare was required during the pandemic when this chase could have been cut and handled in a civilized manner.

  7. Concerned citizen says:

    All we see is a ‘BLANK’ screen and the article is about an ‘Online website that is supposed to ‘automate’ a bribe riddled process.. The blank screen says it all and is fittingly overwhelmed by attention starved people. What a disgrace!
    Instead of pictures of people who seem to dutifully show up at events every day to have their pictures taken, imagine the value of three screens of the ‘WORKING’ website.
    As mentioned in the earlier comments have the professionalism to verify that the site is ‘Safe’ and ‘Working’ and the strength of character to critique. If you want to be a voice for the people stand up for the people who are your subscribers. Star of Mysore, you can do better than this.

    @concerned citizen,
    I guess to sustain the newspaper, more than the subscribers, SOM needs the support of government and hence photos of the politicians almost everyday!!
