Despite the south zone of Bengaluru being three times smaller in size compared to regions like Mahadevpura, in terms of property tax, the south zone has come closer.
Story so far: As a booming IT capital of the country, Bengaluru has the potential to collect almost ₹5,000 crores in property tax. In the year 2022, BBMP has collected a total of 2,718 crores in property tax spread across all regions of Bengaluru.
- South zone has collected over ₹422 crores, sprawled over 61 km, while Mahadevpura, which is 171 km in size, has collected over 693 crores.
- Most regions of Bengaluru have done well except the Bommanahalli, Yelahanka and RR Nagar regions, which have all taken the bottom four.
Future plans: After complaints of the BBMP revenue department being ineffective and going soft on its defaulters, the BBMP chief commissioner is now going to visit every zone to stir tax collection.
