Pimpri, 1st January 2024: Over the past two years, the Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of services provided to property owners within the city. As part of this commitment, the assessment register has transitioned to an online platform starting January 1. Going forward, all property registrations and property tax statements will exclusively be processed online.
PCMC’s initiative aims to streamline processes and offer efficient services to the city’s property owners. With approximately 6 lakh 15 thousand various properties in Pimpri-Chinchwad, the Property and Collection Department has played a crucial role in charging and recovering property. The department operates through 17 Divisional Property Collection Offices, serving property owners seeking property deductions for various government initiatives.
Previously, citizens had to physically visit the property collection office to obtain property deduction extracts. The process involved searching for entries in the property assessment book and receiving handwritten transcripts, causing delays. With effect from January 1, PCMC has transitioned this entire process online. Property owners who register online after this date will receive instant transcripts, for which a nominal fee of Rs.20 is applicable.
For properties recorded before December 31, 2023, property holders can access the ‘Property Transcript’ tab and submit details to the respective Zonal Office. The Group Clerk will then input the entries into the computerized Assessment Register. Property holders will receive links to their e-mails and mobiles, allowing them to instantly obtain the certificate. Offline facilities for these services will be discontinued from January 1.
Property owners can now visit the PCMC website, navigate to the Property and Property Collection Department section, and enter their mobile number or property number. By selecting the property deduction option and following the OTP-based process, citizens can obtain their property extracts online. PCMC encourages property owners to link their mobile numbers to their properties for a seamless experience.
Assistant Commissioner Nilesh Deshmukh from the PCMC Property and Property Collection Department said, “The rapid progress in the property collection department, under the guidance of Commissioner and Additional Commissioner Pradip Jambhale Patil, is ongoing. Our primary goal in modernizing the department is to ultimately enhance the experience for property owners, streamlining their processes for greater ease and efficiency. We are ensuring that the central focus of all our endeavors is the well-being of the citizens of the city.”
