i have registered my property. but i can not pay property tax. they are asking for Rs 10/sq ft as bribe. our municipality ws says the form will be available from the Municipality. it is not available through ws. at the time of registration they noted my email, cell no etc. then why can not they send the bill online ! also i am not paying any municipal tax. my mother in kolkata is paying 45Rs/mo online. more  
In Pune, right from peom to Sub Registrar no one goes to his/her home without earning the bribe of minimum 1 lac per day and amd the maximum corruption goes on at this office andd to the surprise it's officail and right from Builder to all officals are hand in gloves with each other more  
All Registrar and Sub Registrar Offices should be computerized and all transactions online. Payment of Registration Charges should be online. Only this will end corruption in property dealings. more  
Properties should be registered at actual market rates. This may be usually 5 to 10 times higher than the rate shown in the deed. The payment for property transaction should be cheque only, full value shown and PAN of buyer and seller mentioned in the sale deed. The stamp duty may be reduced to 1/5 to 1/10 of the present rate. The tendency to pay some amount by cash will stop only if big denomination notes of Rs.1000, 500 and 100 are permanently withdrawn from circulation. more
