In order to strengthen the economic condition of Nagar Palika of Uttar Pradesh and to make them independent, 74th constitutional ammendment has been made and as per section-9 of Nagar Vikas & order no.- 1435/Nine-9-2000-63J/95 T.C. dated 22 April 2000, an Uttar Pradesh Nagar Palika (Property Tax) Rules Manual' 2000 has been forwarded. These measures are being taken to bring authenticity and transparency in assessment of Property Tax and to make the Self Tax Assessment System available to all the citizens.
The different processes / proceedings of this system are being advertised on a great scale by Nagar Palika. It’s proposed to put up hoardings at different places for this purpose.
Self-Tax assessment is in favour of both citizens and Palika. It is based on logical and authentic standards. It is not biased and is transparent and reasonable. The tax assessment shall be done on the basis of site map and details submitted in the Nagar Palika. Under this self-tax assessment system, a person has been authorized to assess his own tax on the basis of the details of his buildings. Different kinds of pre-defined forms have also been made available for the citizens as per the instructions given by the government. If the site map or the details are not present/ available, the tax assessment will be done by the officers.
