As the name suggests, Kanpur property tax is a tax levied directly on property or legal entities. There are different tax rates for residential property and commercial property.
Previously, the After Repair Value (ARV) was used to collect the property tax, but with increasing properties, the collection process failed to meet the required targets or standards.
To recover from this situation, the revenue department of Kanpur Municipal Corporation has introduced Kanpur property tax online payment procedure and digitised all the assessment registers. KMC has issued a Property Identification Number (PID), which is a unique number available for each property in Kanpur.
The PID consists of the following digits -
Zone ID-1 digit
Ward ID-3 digits
Chauk ID-3 digits
The last 8 digits are the computer-generated auto number of the property.
With a brief overview of the Kanpur property tax comes the property tax calculation process. Therefore, let’s proceed to our next section.
