New Delhi: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has rolled out a simple unified policy for e-change of name of taxpayer/mutation cases for ease and convenience of property owners. The department has made E-Change of name process online and there will be no human interface for mutation of property in property tax records.
MCD with reference to transfer of property through Registered Sale Deed/Registered Agreement to Sale/ Conveyance Deed by land owning agency/Registered Gift Deed, prior to 1st April, 2019 has simplified the process.
Now only five general documents may be required for mutation i.e (1) Affidavit from the applicant on Rs. 10/- stamp paper (duly notarized), (2) Indemnity Bond from the applicant on Rs. 100 stamp paper (duly notarized), (3) Death certificate of the previous owner, if applicable, (4) Receipts of upto date payment of property tax, (5) Complete chain of ownership documents.
In case of transfer of property through Registered Sale Deed/Registered Agreement to Sale/ Conveyance Deed by land owning agency/Registered Gift Deed on or after 1st April, 2019, MCD has dispensed away the separate application for e-change of name required for property tax purpose. These cases are auto triggered and can be downloaded from MCD portal.
These valid e-change of name certificate are akin to other e-change of name certificate generated by application on MCD portal and require no stamping and signature by any MCD officials. It will be the duty of the concerned Circle Officer of the Zone to update the Demand and Collection register subsequent to such auto e-change of name on his/her own or upon production of such record by the tax payers. In exceptional cases where auto trigger does not take place, application on MCD Portal can be made.
MCD is making every possible effort to provide all civic facilities online to the citizens in a simple and transparent manner and the unified policy for e-change of name in mutation cases is a step in this direction.
