Coimbatore re-launches digital assessment of property tax payments

Coimbatore, India: The city corporation has re-launched the Geographical Information System (GIS) project in its limits after the previous attempt a few months back could not succeed.

The exercise is now being conducted all over again in municipal ward no 38 near Peelamedu and a 10-member team will go door-to-door to collect property tax payment details from the residents. The exercise is expected to be completed in a week time, claimed officials.

“Only one out of the 2,300 entries collected in the exercise tallied with the actual data and the whole process is now being repeated all over again in one ward,” corporation commissioner TK Ponnusamy said.

The GIS project was announced in three municipal corporations of Madurai, Coimbatore and Trichy and also in two municipalities of Gobichettippalayam and Rajapalayam in the state. The basic concept of the digital mapping exercise is to come up with a detailed map of the city with clear cut demarcations about the various roads and properties on it. It could also be utilised for city planning and development purposes.

The corporation officials will be able to access the details about each individual structure in its limits using the unique property ID number after the implementation of the project.
