Maharashtra Government announces waiver of Property Taxes of not more than 500 sq.ft. The Shiv Sena and Congress Led government in Maharashtra has allowed complete waiver of property taxes of all residential apartments whose area does not exceed more than 500 sq.ft.
We are assuming that this 500 sq.ft will be carpet area as the current Government regulations stipulate most of the transactions on carpet area basis. Even if the same is on builtup area which will be mentioned in the agreement for sale, its still becomes a substantial saving for a Mumbai resident.
Property Taxes are typically payable every 6 months in each financial year. The Property Taxes in South Mumbai will be typically higher than an apartment in Borivali or Virar. So based on the location you are and the rateable value of the area, the property taxes will be calculated on those basis.
