Incentive helps Madurai civic body net 35% of property tax dues

Dated on: Monday 15th May 2023

The introduction of a government incentive by the state has resulted in the Madurai corporation successfully collecting approximately 35% of property tax dues during the first half of the yearly tax cycle. Specifically, in the latter half of April, a significant portion of the total dues amounting to 18 crore out of 50 crore was collected. As part of the incentive, property taxpayers were offered a 5% reduction from their total dues, capped at 5,000 rupees, if paid before April 30. It is important to mention that this incentive, initially exclusive to residents of the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC), was expanded to encompass other municipal corporations via an amendment in the Tamil Nadu Urban Local Bodies Act of 1998, as clarified by a revenue official.
