New Delhi: East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has started distribution of Unique Property Identification Code (UPIC) cards to property owners, a facility meant for widening property tax net.
The initiative was started on Friday during an event held at the EDMC headquarter at Patparganj for launching a property tax management portal.
As per the officials, the UPIC card contains details of property owners. The first three digits of the card will denote ward number, next four digits will denote colony number and the remaining digits will specify the respective properties.
The objective of the UPIC project is to widen property tax base in EDMC jurisdiction, officials said. “Under this project, grievance redressal will be done through a centralised call centre,” a senior official said.
EDMC has 795 colonies in 64 wards and a survey for issuing UPIC cards has been completed in 32 wards. “By March 2020, we are hopeful that all properties in East Delhi will be included in the property tax net,” he said.
