Seeking to augment its revenue, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation on Tuesday proposed in its budget to increase property tax levied on residential and commercial properties, and reduce the number of rate slabs from three to two.
Residential, commercial and non-residential plots (of up to 150 sqm) are currently divided into three categories in the city -- 'A-B'; 'C-E' and 'F-H' categories.
"I propose that for the financial year 2022-23, the number of categories should be reduced from three to two -- 'A-E' and 'F-H'," Bharati said, while presenting revised budget estimates for 2021-22 and budget estimates for 2022-23 at the Civic Centre here.
