How to Pay Property Tax Online in Bengaluru (2017-18)

For payment of property tax for 2017-18, BBMP has further simplified and refined its new property tax portal launched just last year. The procedure to pay property tax for most property owners (for whom there is no change in usage, structure or occupancy of their property, i.e. Form IV) has been vastly simplified from last year with just a single page form with minimal user inputs required to pay the property tax. Even for those property owners whose property has some changes, the Form V is quite simple as compared to last year.

The following are the steps to pay Property Tax using the updated portal:

1. Go to the new BBMP Property Tax portal ( and enter your SAS Base Application Number on the home page and click on “Fetch”. If you don’t have / know your base application number, select Renewal Application Number and enter your last year’s SAS application number. You could also use your old or new Property ID (PID) to proceed, if you know it.

2. If the SAS application number or PID entered by you is valid, you will see your property’s first/sole owner’s displayed on the next page. Ensure that it is correct and click on “Proceed” to go to the property tax Form IV.

In case there are any changes in the built-up area, occupancy or tenancy status of the property, select the check box before clicking on “Proceed”. This will take you to Form V instead where you can update your property particulars.

3. On the next page, all the details should have been pre-filled. If you did not check the box on the previous page, most of the fields will not be editable (except phone numbers) since the form assumes there are no changes in any particulars from the previous year. Verify that all the details are correct and proceed to make the payment either online or via challan at the BBMP ward office.

If you checked the box on the previous page, you will be presented with Form V that allows you to modify the particulars of your property. You can do the necessary changes and then click on “Proceed to Next Step” at the bottom to see the tax calculation.

On the next page, confirm if the calculations are correct and then proceed to pay the amount online or via challan.

4. Lastly, if you have chosen the online payment option, you can make the payment either via netbanking or credit card or e-wallet via the PayU portal. Once the payment is completed, a receipt number will be generated. However, it may take up to 24 hours for the electronic receipt (in PDF format) to be available on the portal. You can print / download the receipt later via this link:

5. If you face any technical glitch while making the online payment, you can check the status and complete the payment here by entering your 2017-18 SAS application number:

6. If you face any problems in filing your property tax, please contact BBMP via the below options:

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I don’t know my SAS Base Application Number. What should I do? You can select “Renewal Application Number” and enter your last year’s SAS application number below. You can get the renewal number from your last year’s property tax receipt.
  2. How do I find out my PID number? Use this link to find out:
  3. I am being asked to pay a “Balance property tax from 2016-17” even though I have paid the full property tax as calculated by the online form last year. What is this new demand? There was a programming error in the online form last May due to which for certain properties (which had change in property details from 2015-16) the system ended up calculating a much lower tax than actually payable. This shortfall is being collected this year. For details please refer:
    Thanks to reader Hari for this tip!
  4. The property tax form does not allow me to enter or edit the Street Name. And without that I cannot proceed to the next page for payment. Follow these steps to work around this problem:
    a) Do not click the Verify check box before going for online payment
    b) This will result in a popup asking to verify.
    c) Now click the Verify check box
    d) The dialog box asking to enter Street Name does not pop up anymore now and you can proceed for payment!
    Thanks to reader P. Seshan for this tip!
  5. I have selected Challan Payment option instead of Online Payment (or vice versa). How do I change it now? As of now it is not possible to change the payment mode once selected. You may write to BBMP to add this option.
  6. While making the payment online I faced a technical problem and was unable to complete payment. If I retry, portal says “Payment already in transition”. How do I check the status or complete the payment? You can check the status of payment in progress and continue making payment via this link:
  7. I am not sure if the property tax calculated by the portal is correct. How do I confirm this? Please use the BBMP property tax calculator to verify:
  8. I have completed the payment online but I am not able to view the receipt at “Downloads > Receipt Print”. Please check again after 24 hours.

    After giving the pid no, it fetches my name and ward no. But when I click on confirm, it says “For your new SAS Application 2016-17 xxxxx, No khata details found. Please contact ARO”.
    I went to the concerned BBMP ward office and have given a request to correct it. I did not get a proper reply regarding when it will be done.

    So blessed you are that you are continuing with your good work year after year.
    When citizens are overwhelmingly coming forward to pay their taxes, BBMP can go all out to make the process simpler. For eg. Both the landline helpline numbers provided only automatically receive the calls but ultimately no person comes on line to answer. It shows all their operators are busy attending to other callers.
    Here if they provide a mobile helpline number just to get a missed call from those wanting to pay taxes and finding issues, the BBMP can in return call each of the callers and resolve their issues. Hope the higher bosses in BBMP will pay attention in these matters.

    Hi Vijay, While trying to fetch details for the Propert Tax payment, I clicked on the Challan Payment button by mistake. I intended to click the Online Payment button. The Payment Status page shows CF as Payment mode instead of OF for my application. How can I change it to Online Payment mode? Each time I try to do it freshly, a popup says that the application is set for Challan Payment.

    • SunilSunil04-25-2017

        looks like there is no workaround. I did the same mistake today

        • AnandAnand06-13-2017

          Go to your BBMP office and ask them to cancel it. In any case I think it should resolve automatically in 2 days time.

    • John SJohn S04-02-2018

      Looks like I have the same problem when I try to pay the 2018-19 tax, “No Khata details found, Please contact ARO”. It was all fine till last year and now it is giving issues. I called BBMP, they told me if I have any outstanding tax, which I don’t. They don’t have any resolution and told me to contact the ARO. How did you guys fix the issue. Appreciate your guidance.
