Untitled design 42

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is set to embark on a comprehensive door-to-door survey to digitize property documents within the city limits. This initiative, under the Nanna Swatthu program, aims to bring properties outside the tax net into focus, address building violations, and counteract the forgery of property documents. Residents across Bengaluru have received messages urging them to prepare for the upcoming survey by having their property tax receipts and Bescom bills readily available.

The BBMP’s decision to digitize property documents comes as part of a broader effort to streamline and modernize the management of property records in Bengaluru. This initiative is crucial for identifying properties currently not contributing to the tax net. Residents in areas such as C V Raman Nagar, Horamavu, Arakere, and Kodigenahalli will soon witness the arrival of BBMP staff at their doorsteps, initiating a process that aims to compile accurate information about all properties within the city limits.

The digitization drive falls under the umbrella of the Nanna Swatthu program, introduced by Deputy Chief Minister and Bengaluru Development Minister D K Shivakumar a month ago. This program is a modified version of the existing ‘e-Aasthi’ platform of BBMP. The primary objectives include bringing transparency to property records, regularizing building violations, and ultimately enhancing the city’s revenue by ensuring that all eligible properties are within the tax net.

The BBMP’s proactive approach involves dispatching revenue and tax inspectors to visit households in specific areas over the next few weeks. Residents in these localities are encouraged to cooperate by providing necessary documents such as property tax receipts and Bescom bills. By doing so, property owners not only contribute to the accuracy of their records but also aid in boosting property tax revenue for the city. It is estimated that a significant percentage, approximately 25-30%, of properties in Bengaluru are currently not within the tax net.

One of the primary motivations behind the digitization scheme is to curb tax evasion and prevent the forgery of property documents. By ensuring that every property is accounted for and appropriately taxed, the BBMP aims to plug potential leaks in tax revenue. Additionally, the initiative seeks to create a foolproof system for property documents, reducing the scope for fraudulent activities and providing residents with greater confidence in the legitimacy of their property records.
