Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has come up with a citizen 360-degree approach to identify all unassessed properties and default tax payers.

The integrated approach, an algorithm designed to perform a comparison based on name and door number in the integrated database, helps identify default tax payers.

GHMC said though there were 17.3 lakh electricity connections in the city and 21.65 electricity connections in Ranga Reddy with partial connections falling under the jurisdiction of GHMC, only 14.7 lakh properties were registered in property tax data of the civic body.

This activity has resulted in identifying 13.08 lakh connections of electricity and 5.58 lakh connections of water board which are not

matching with any of the records of GHMC. On a pilot basis, an SMS campaign has been initiated to send information to such property owners to voluntarily come forward and assess their properties.

However, it is to be noted that the data mining may not lead to hundred per cent accuracy due to various factors at field level. Hence, a complete implementation of this exercise is scheduled to start from April first week with field inspection and verification.

A similar exercise is also planned for trades established in GHMC, paying GST fee but not Trade License. This activity will help to identify new tax payers, scrutiny of existing tax payers such as domestic/ commercial usage in comparison with other departments data.
