Hike in Property Tax: Delegation of Mayor & Mangalore City MLAs to Meet Urban Development Minister & CM For Tax Revision

Mayor Sudheer Shetty Kannur said that a delegation of the Mangalore City Corporation council with two city MLAs will meet the Urban Development Minister and the Chief Minister in Bengaluru soon to discuss matters related to the revision of property tax.

The council in its last month’s meeting had unanimously decided to hike the property tax by 3% based on the guidance value of properties (in Mangalore) fixed by the State government on February 19, 2021. But the Commissioner of the corporation instructed the revenue officials to collect the tax on the basis of guidance value of properties revised as on October 1, 2023. It has resulted in a steep hike in the property tax.

He said that the Commissioner is bound to implement the resolution passed by the council. If it is against the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976 the Commissioner should write to the government on the same and act further based on directions from the government. But in this case the Commissioner has taken the decision himself against the resolution of the council and without consulting the government. It will be brought to the notice of the government.  The Mayor said that the government has made it clear that the property tax should be revised without reducing the annual tax demand and without making it a burden on the people.
