Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) has gone digital. The city planning authority has from this financial year introduced online services, making e-payments of property tax mandatory and issuing soft copies of possession certificates and khatas.
Owners of properties developed by BDA are required to register on the web, providing details such as cellphone numbers and property IDs, before paying property tax online at www.bdabangalore.org or ropertytax.bdabangalore.org. The system generates receipts that taxpayers can download.
BDA has stopped its annual dispatches of physical demand challans to property owners, except to those who own sites or buildings in Arkavathy Layout – where the authority is yet to complete site allotments.
