MCD Extends Geotagging Deadline for Properties to February 29, 2024

In an announcement on January 30, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) revealed an extension of the deadline for property owners in the capital to geotag their commercial and residential properties. The new deadline is set for February 29, 2024, as communicated by the MCD through a tweet.

The decision to extend the deadline was prompted by technical glitches affecting iPhone users (iOS version), preventing them from completing the geotagging process. The MCD assured that the issue is a priority and will be resolved promptly.

Failure to geotag properties by the specified date will result in property owners being ineligible for the rebate on lumpsum tax payments by June 30, 2024, in the subsequent financial year (2024-2025).

Geotagging involves digitally mapping a property using the Geographic Information System (GIS), assigning it unique and permanent latitude and longitude coordinates on a map. Property owners are required to download the MCD’s mobile app, select “current location” while at their property, and link it with a unique property identification code (UPIC).

Additionally, the MCD urged property owners not registered on the MCD property tax portal to register their properties by generating a UPIC before proceeding with the geotagging process.
