Property tax bills through SMS in Pune

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is launching a new system in which citizens would get details of their property tax bills through an SMS service.

Trials have already started and to be a part of it, one has to type 'eaa' give space, mention your property number and sms it to 54646. The details of the tax will be sent on your mobile within a few seconds.

"The on-line billing facility is already there, but we wanted to reach all sections of the society and mobile is the best medium to do so," municipal commissioner Pravinsinh Pardeshi said.

The formal announcement of the project would be made in a week. The PMC is also working on a plan in which citizens can receive property bills on mobile and pay them on-line. "This is the second phase which would take some time. However, the SMS project will start immediately," he added.
