SDMC signed a MoU with GeoSpatial Delhi to provide UPIC for South Delhi properties

May 27, 2014 14:14 IST

South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) on 26 May 2014 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the GeoSpatial Delhi to give Unique Property Identification Code (UPIC) to all properties in the civic body’s jurisdiction. This step will enable SDMC to collect property tax easily.

The process of providing unique codes to each property is the responsibility of SDMC under Section 125 of the Delhi Municipal Act.

The MoU was signed because the data of GeoSpatial Delhi claims that of 14.91 lakh properties in South Delhi only 4.31 lakh were under the tax net in 2012-13. Whereas the only 20 percent of the properties are non-taxable for various reasons and apart from this about 12 lakh properties falls under the tax net.


Now the next step of SDMC is to survey the properties and then bring all those under one electronic-based system.
