Property tax helps local bodies generate revenue to maintain civic services and provide amenities to its citizens. Property tax in Delhi is levied on real estate and vacant land. The local body in concern here is the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and it is divided into North MCD, South MCD, and East MCD.
The formula used by the MCD for the property tax is: Annual Value x Rate of Tax, and the property tax rate is revised on an annual basis. Moreover, Delhi is divided into 8 categories, A to H, and the rate for the house tax in Delhi differs as per the category the property falls under.
