Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has achieved a significant milestone by collecting tax of Rs 810 crores in the financial year 2022-23. This is the first time in the 40-year history of the Municipal Corporation that it has crossed the 810 crore mark. 

Property tax is the major source of income of the municipal corporation, and with 5 lakh 97 thousand 487 properties within its limits, it has managed to collect 182 crores more than the previous year’s collection of 628 crores.

The success in tax collection has been attributed to the efforts of the tax collection and taxation department, under the guidance of Municipal Commissioner and Administrator Shekhar Singh, Additional Commissioner Pradeep Jambhale-Patil, and Assistant Commissioner Nilesh Deshmukh. 

The department took various measures to create public awareness among tax defaulters, such as seizing property, cutting tap connections, publishing names of big defaulters in newspapers, and running unique competitions like memes in busy places in the city, main squares, roads, etc.

The department also used various advertisements and publicity measures like hoardings, flexes, pamphlets, and social media to create public awareness among the tax defaulters. In addition, they provided property tax bills online to the citizens and also offered online and offline facilities for payment of taxes.

The achievement of PCMC in tax collection has been widely appreciated, and it is expected that this success will inspire other municipal corporations to follow suit. The Municipal Corporation has expressed its gratitude to all the taxpayers who have contributed to the record-breaking tax collection.

“To make sure the goal of Rs 1,000 crore is met, a routine evaluation will be conducted.

The PCMC workers and officials deserve all the credit for recovering 800 crores. The Commissioner will award selected officials and staff for their efforts,” said Pradeep Jambhale Patil, Additional Commissioner, PCMC.
