As per provisions of section 127 read with section 129 of the BPMC Act, 1949 all lands & building in the area of Municipal Corporation are subject to levy municipal property taxes. Property tax is charged on the rateable value of the property. Accordingly in order to assess the properties to municipal property taxes a survey of all the properties was carried out and rateable value was fixed w.e.f.1/1/1992. For the sake of assessment NMMC area is dived into following categories :
