Online water bill, property tax payment facility soon
THE HINDU, 05 NOVEMBER, 2018


Civic body reaches an understanding with a private bank as it needs hand holding, technical support

COIMBATORE: To further ease the manner in which the residents pay property tax and water charges, the Coimbatore Corporation is working on bringing in new payment solutions.

According to sources, the civic body has been providing offline payment through its tax collection centres and online payment through either net banking or credit card. At the tax collection centres, it has the facility for swiping cards as well.

But soon those paying the tax or water charges will have more options in that they can transfer online through NEFT (National Electronic Funds Transfer) or RTGS (Real Time Gross Settlement) or Bharat Bill Payment System or Aadhaar-enabled payment system.

The sources say that the Corporation has been holding talks with bankers and service providers and has reached an understanding with a private bank as it needs hand holding, technical support and all the help that is required to make this a reality.

Once the system is implemented, tax assessees or water consumers will have more options to pay online and also at the tax collection centres. The plan is to have Aadhaar-enabled point of sale machines at the centres.

To further ease the mode of payment, bill collectors or authorised staff may carry the point of sale machines to the assessees houses, where they will be able to do at once. This will result in greater tax compliance and timely inflow of money into the civic body coffers as well, the sources also say.

The Corporation is taking the steps based on the instructions from the Central Government, which is pushing for greater digitisation.

At present, the Corporation gets 25 % to 30% of its property tax collection through cards or net banking. This works to over ? 30 crore a year.

The sources add that there has been a gradual increase in such payment method, starting 2014, when such collection worked to only five % of the total demand. In 2015 and 2016 it was around seven % and shot up to 25% in 2017.
