How to calculate the tax on Property in Delhi?
MCD calculates the tax on the property by using the ‘Unit Area System’ throughout the City, like if you are planning to buy DLF One Midtown Property in Moti Nagar then the property tax will be different for the area than the properties located in the other areas of Delhi.
The formulas to calculate property tax by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi is as follows:
- The property tax is equal to the annual value multiplied by the tax rate
- The value per square meter of the unit area is multiplied by the unit area of the property then multiplied by the age factor, use factor, structure factor, and occupancy factor.
- Every year, MCD publishes the rate of tax on categories like a tax on residential, industrial property, and residential properties. A list of the applicable rates is available on the MCD website.
