East Delhi Municipal Corporation has extended the deadline for exemption in interest and penalty for renewal of licences and 15% rebate in property tax. The new deadline will be August 31.

EDMC spokesperson said that outgoing mayor Nirmal Jain and chairman of standing committee Satyapal Singh gave advance approval to two important proposals on Wednesday. “Now renewal of all types of licences such as general licence, health licence, veterinary licence or factory licence will be exempted from interest and penalty till August 31, 2021,” he added.

Jain said that since a new system has been created for online payment of property tax, which is being implemented by NIC, there are some flaws in making UPIC ID. “Therefore, in order to facilitate the taxpayers, the date has been extended 15% rebate in property tax under Section 177 of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi Act. An additional rebate of 2% will be given for online payment of property tax on mcdonline.nic.in and 3% for self-declaration of getting vaccinated to protect against Covid,” Jain said.

He said that for the convenience of taxpayers in east Delhi, 10 service centres will be opened in each ward.
