You basically apply to BBMP asking for your Property Number against which you will be paying the property tax.
Step 1 – Collect following documents set
- You need a copy of your Sale/Conveyance deed, preferably certified as True Copy by a Notary (if you take along original Conveyance deed and show to BBMP Officer, then notarization is not needed)
- A copy of the EC, preferably certified as True Copy by a notary.
- Completed the Property Tax Application form (Original)
- Completed Property Tax Application form (Photocopy, for acknowledgement)

Step 2 – Go to BBMP office and submit the application. You must get an acknowledgement of submission on the photocopy of the application form
Attention – You will be asked to pay some Bakshish (Rs 500), please do not pay. You will be given all sorts of excuses like server slow, file will go here there, etc reasons. Do not succumb to such stories.
Step 3 – In theory once BBMP has processed your application, you are supposed to get a SMS notifying your property number. If you have not got the notification after 2 weeks, give BBMP a visit and ask what happened.
