SDMC stands for South Delhi Municipal Corporation Property Tax. The SDMC extends various civic facilities and services to property owners in the region, including water supply from the Delhi Jal Board, sewerage, and infrastructure maintenance. SDMC levies a tax on all real estate properties (residential and commercial) that come within its jurisdiction, known as property tax, to fund these services.
SDMC has further divided South Delhi into five different zones, i.e., Najafgarh, West Zone, Central Zone, South Zone, and Headquarters. South Delhi municipal corporation property tax varies depending on several factors like usage, ownership, unit area value, area covered by a property, etc.
