As a property owner, you are required to pay tax on property you own. The State Government utilises this for the upkeep and development of public services and infrastructural projects in the state. This includes maintaining civic amenities like drainage systems, roads and shared public spaces as well as constructing schools and parks. Property tax differs based on location and more specifically, the Municipal Corporation you fall under. For instance, if you live in Telangana, you must pay tax to GHMC or the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.
Property tax is collected by local municipal bodies and hence, the amount you pay, and the mode of payment depends upon the particular formulae used and the provisions made. The GMHC employs different formulae for non-residential and residential properties and accepts tax payments via both online and offline modes. This means that you can make a property tax online payment in Telangana, as mentioned earlier, by simply following a set of instructions.
If you are an individual who comes under the purview of the GMHC, here’s what you need to know about GMHC tax and how to pay it.

The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) collects property tax annually from property owners to provide better civic amenities and improve the city’s infrastructure. You need to pay GHMC property tax irrespective of whether you occupy the property or give it out on rent. The tax collected depends on location, size, whether the property is under construction or ready for occupancy, and services provided by the municipality in that particular area. Further, the gender and age of property owners may also be considered as senior citizens and female owners may be charged a lower rate.
You can calculate the property tax applicable to both residential and commercial properties by either using the GHMC tax calculator online or manually with the formula. If you opt for the online route, then once you enter the required property details, you will be able to see an estimate of the property tax due. Alternatively, you can use the following formulae to compute your tax payments.
You can use the following formula when calculating residential GHMC property tax.
Property tax on residential property = Plinth area * (monthly rent per sq. ft. x 12) * (slab rate) - 10% depreciation + 8% library cess.
The plinth area refers to the total built-up area
The slab rate is determined by the Monthly Rental Value
To calculate property tax for a commercial property in Hyderabad, you can use the following formula.
Property tax on commercial property = 3.5 x Plinth area in sq. ft. x Monthly Rental Value in Rs. per sq. ft.
Here, the Monthly Rental Value is determined by GMHC based on factors such as taxation zones.
You can request for property assessment either online or offline. Here’s how.
To initiate assessment for a new property, you need to make an application and attach documents such as the sale deed and Occupancy Certificate to the Deputy Commissioner. Upon receiving your application, the concerned authority will then physically inspect the property, verify the details provided by you and calculate the property tax as per the prevailing slab rate. Once this is done, you will be provided with a Unique Property Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and a new house number.
To make your request online, follow the steps listed below.
Login to the official GHMC website and click on the self-assessment form
Enter your mobile number and generate an OTP
Next, fill in the details required in the self-assessment form
Once done, upload PDF copies of the sale deed and occupancy certificate
Click on the ‘Save’ tab
Once your application is received, the concerned authority will inspect the property, verify the details provided by you and calculate property tax according to the applicable slab rate. Thereafter, you will be provided with a Unique Property Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and a new house number.
If at any point in time you decide to renovate the building or make additions to it, the property tax payable will increase and will be decided as the prevailing slab rates at that time. However, the PTIN and house number will remain the same. To reassess the property tax amount, you can contact the Deputy Commissioner in person.
You can either process the GHMC tax payment online or offline by following these steps.
