MCD Mayor Dr Shelly Oberoi today chaired a meeting with the Assessment and Collection department of the corporation. The meeting was attended by Assessor and Collector Shri Kunal Kashyap and other senior officials of the A & C department.
In the meeting, senior officials apprised the Mayor about the status of revenue collection, tax policies and challenges faced by the department over the years.
The Mayor discussed and reviewed various initiatives of the A&C department to optimise revenue generation through Property tax and ongoing schemes like Amnesty Scheme and Samriddhi Scheme of the department.
She was also briefed about the citizen-centric measures undertaken by the department to facilitate smooth property tax collection through its online portal.
The Mayor emphasised on the need to give wide publicity to the people friendly property tax schemes like Samriddhi scheme, Amnesty Scheme. She noted that there is a lack of awareness about MCD’s property tax schemes. “We will make this system simpler and more accessible for every citizen,” she said.

The Mayor stated that the new MCD government will bring forth new initiatives that will ensure a transparent and effective property tax collection in the city.
The AAP led MCD government has been working tirelessly to ensure an efficient property tax mechanism for the benefit of Delhi citizens living in all categories of colonies.
