How to calculate property tax in Delhi?

The MCD uses the ‘Unit Area System’ for property tax calculation. The formula used for calculation is Property tax = Annual value x Rate of tax

And  Annual value = Unit area value per sq metre x Unit area of property x Age factor x Use factor x Structure factor x Occupancy factor.

For example-

Consider, you have a 1,000-sq ft self-occupied residential property in a colony that comes under Category B.

Unit area value= Rs 500 per sq metre

Unit area = 100 sq metre.

Age factor= 0.6

Use factor= 1

Structure factor= 1.0

Occupancy factor= 1.0

Annual Value = 500 x 100 x 0.6 x 1.0 x 1.0 x 1.0 = Rs 30,000

Property tax = Annual value x Rate of tax (as mentioned above in category B tax rate) = 30,000 x 12% = Rs 3,600

Net property tax = Rs 3,600
