VADODARA: It will now be possible for Barodians to pay their taxes from the comfortable environs of their home or office instead of sweating it out in long queues. The Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) has started collecting property taxes online through an 'e-payment' facility.

The facility that kicked off on Wednesday, makes it possible for citizens to login into the VMC website and pay taxes there by simply entering the census number of their property. The payments can be made using a credit or debit card of any bank. Paying taxes earlier was a daunting task due to the long queues that were witnessed at ward offices.

Information technology director of VMC S J Patel said that besides helping persons keen on avoiding queues, the service will be a major boon for those who have properties in the city, but stay at another place. "They are unable to pay taxes in time as they are not present in the city. The problem is more acute with NRIs who have properties in the city, but remain abroad for long periods," Patel added.

All that one needs to do now is to log into the website vmcegov.com and to the link 'Pay Property Tax Online'. Simply entering the census number of the property will give all the details regarding the property tax bill of the property.

The user can then pay his tax using a credit or debit card. Patel said the VMC was using Axis Bank's payment gateway for transactions. "The bank is providing the services to us free," Patel said.

The VMC has recently also linked all ward offices for payment of taxes following which property tax can be paid at any ward office and citizens need not go to the office of the ward where the property is located. Also, debit and credit cards are being accepted at these offices.
