The civic body has waived the deadline for property owners in merged areas under PMC limits to submit PT3 forms, which are an affidavit for the property’s self-occupancy. This will provide a temporary reprieve from this requirement. The deadline has been extended to the end of the financial year.
In order to qualify for the 40% property tax benefits offered for self-occupied properties by Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), these forms must be completed.
The deadline for the same was January 31st, as established by the civic administration. The majority of property owners won’t be obliged to meet the submission deadline because they haven’t received their property tax bills yet.
The administration is in the process of issuing the bills, according to a senior PMC official. When property owners receive their bills, they must fulfill the necessary formalities. The new deadline is still pending. However, waivers are available to property owners through the end of the fiscal year. Only the residents of 23 combined villages have received assistance from the administration.
According to a Undri resident, the property tax bills that the administration has sent are significantly higher than the ones that the gram panchayat used to send. They find it burdensome to pay new bills, especially since PMC barely provides them with any civic services.
