East Delhi Municipal Corporation Property Tax

The East Delhi Municipal Corporation is one of the municipal corporations in Delhi. It levies an annual tax on all real estate properties, right from vacant plots to buildings, located in East Delhi. This is referred to as property tax and collected from property owners of self-occupied, rented, residential and commercial buildings.

Calculation of EDMC Property Tax

The calculation of EDMC property tax is done based on a 'unit area system' using the formula:

Property Tax = Annual Value * Rate of Tax

Wherein, annual value (of a property) = unit area of property * unit area value per square metre * occupancy factor * age factor * structure factor * use factor

Rate of tax = The current rate of tax applicable each year is updated by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on their official website.

What these terms mean:

  • Unit area of property: This refers to the built-up area of the property.
  • Unit area value per square metre: This is the property's value per square metre of its built-up area.
  • Occupancy factor: Self-occupied properties are levied lesser tax than those rented out.
  • Age factor: New properties are charged a higher tax as compared to older/ageing ones.
  • Structure factor: Properties with RCC constructions are charged higher than low-value constructions.
  • Use factor: Residential properties are taxed much less than non-residential/commercial ones.
