BMC (Files) Top News FIVE years since the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) adopted a new software to assess and compute property tax through a capital value-based system anomalies in computation miscalculation and a number of other technical glitches continue to plague the assessment department of the municipality After the civic body migrated from the rateable value-based system to the more scientific system based on capital values of properties tax revenue to the tune of Rs 7000 crore is locked in disputes and litigation That is more than the annual average of Rs 5000 crore collected by the BMC in property taxes Since March 2013 more than 54317 call logs / complaints regarding the property tax assessment system have been recorded from the city’s 24 wards More than 3000 complaints are still pending resolution According to assessment inspectors across the city glitches in the software are plenty It does not update payments made online amount payable annually is often mentioned as due for six months in the annexure / bills navigation from one section to another on the same page is not possible without logging in multiple times no history of payments is maintained Also systems remain unoperational for almost three months every year leading to piling up of work load “In order to generate increased revenue through tax collection and overcome the limitations arising out of the rateable value system where rent control limits the notional rateable value or rent-earning value of a property the rateable value system was discontinued in 2010 However neither was staff trained nor was software for computing and calculating tax as per the new system ready It led to chaos to the extent that we continue to come across errors till date” said a senior assessment inspector The issue of nearly Rs 11000 crore (cumulatively since before migration to the new system) locked up due to litigation was recently taken up by BJP corporator Abhijit Samant who raised a point of order in a Standing Committee meeting The BMC issues two property tax bills — one for the April-September period and the second for the October-March period The tax amount is based on the area construction property size and the age of the building Property Tax also includes taxes such as water tax sewerage tax etc Anomalies in computation alongside the steeper new taxes have caused concerns for home and property owners The new system also carries the threat of hefty penalties for non-payment The software glitches have led to assessment inspectors facing public wrath due to miscalculation and wrong computation One inspector said “Taxpayers don’t buy these reasons for the goof-ups They have accepted the new system; they pay tax on time but still face problems They blame us because we have assessed their properties and they know us Technically we work for seven hours of which three hours are spent facing angry tax payers” To cite an example Vinay Joshi a resident of Vile Parle cleared his property tax for 2015-16 and left for the US When he returned he found a BMC notice intimating him that his property tax was outstanding Joshi had made the payment online and had received a receipt but the same was not updated in the system The payment was then updated manually In the case of Seven Hills hospital Andheri the hospital administration was issued a notice stating that the amount payable as property tax for 2011 2012 and 2013 was Rs 1017 crore but the hospital contended that the amount was Rs 585 crore The hospital administration wrote to the civic body in 2014 lodging its objection The matter then landed in court Another example is that of Unity Complex a residential society in Malad West which also alleged that it had received inflated property tax bills this year in July All these cases were then resolved by making manual corrections in the software “There are several modules where we add edit data However to work on each module one has to first log in complete the work take a printout and following this the system logs you out One has to re-login to work on another module on the same page The system is designed in such a manner that it leads to both waste of time and paper” said an assessment inspector While errors still crop up the contract with the company which designed and maintained the system has concluded leaving the department to tackle pending and unresolved complaints “Already there were so many problems with the system and the support provided only dealt with individual complaints and not the root cause of the problem However now that the contract has concluded it’s like we are moving in a bus without a driver We were doing better calculations manually” said an official Sanjog Kabare BMC’s Assessor and Collector said there had been issues but they have been resolved “Pending ones will be resolved as soon as new contract is signed which will be done by next week” Kabare said

The Supreme Court Monday stayed the Madras High Court order to maintain status quo on the process of appointing 12 judges saying it was a “serious matter” which will be taken up A Bench of Justices B S Chauhan and J Chelameswar also took note of the conduct of a judge of the Madras High Court who on January 9 had walked in as a special Bench was hearing a PIL against the proposed appointment of new judges and said the choice of probables was not fair “It is a very serious matter not only for the institution but also otherwise” the Bench observed while restraining a Division Bench of the High Court from further proceeding with the matter The apex court also put in abeyance the January 9 direction of the HC directing the Union Law Ministry to maintain status quo in respect of the list of 12 names forwarded by the Madras High Court It said the “gravity of the situation” had to be taken into consideration and the matter had to be withdrawn from the High Court and heard by a three-judge Bench of the SC The Bench accepted the submission of Attorney General G E Vahanvati that such a serious matter cannot be heard in the atmosphere of commotion and alleged indulgence of a sitting judge who had walked into the courtroom during the hearing “If he (the judge) has made a comment he should be made a party You understand the implication Unless he is made party he can’t say anything on his conduct” the Bench said A few days back Madras HC Judge C S Karnan had taken everyone by surprise as he entered the courtroom and said “The selection is unfair I am also a part of the judiciary I want to file an affidavit in my own name Please take note of it” During hearing the Attorney General questioned the interim order of the HC contending that the process of appointment of judges for higher judiciary was beyond the scope of judicial review He said judicial review on appointment of judges could be taken up only if such appointment lacked the eligibility criteria and the process of
