The online collection of tax will help people of the capital city, and also aid the ward officers and tax collectors involved in tax collection. 

In order to streamline the process, BMC has assigned tax collectors to 3 zones. 

According to sources quoting BMC commissioner Sanjay Kumar Singh, more than 50 per cent of revenue from the total collections of Rs 150 crore has been collected online in the last financial year.

According to Singh, BMC has been providing multiple services online through ‘‘ for the welfare of public in general. The programmes have also received positive response from the public.
