Friends,

vacant land tax was collected by teh muncipality(not the VAO)

there was a court ruling which barred the local body from collecting vacant land tax.
are they asking for it, let me know.

What are the taxes applicable for an empty plot (aproved) . Is this mandidatory when going for cmda aproval. I heard that after cmda aproval, we needs to get panjayath aproval ( panchayath president has to sign) and there they will ask for land tax receipts.

Default vacant land tax

according to recent ammendments vacant land tax is applicable for vacant land over 3 grounds, however strictly speaking its necessary but not enforced.
Regarding approval, for old layouts the local body under the authority of cmda issues approval.

Icon25 Vacant land tax - chennai

hi guys
Recently i went for the approval for the construction of residential building in my 2000 sf land limited to palavaram municipality,
they are ok with the plan and now i only need to pay the approval charges, the problem now is they are asking for Vacant land tax and as per their oral communication they are asking close to INR 200000.00.
When I checked GO no.151 ISSUED ON 2009 ,its says streets in residential area mean we just need to pay 0.40 paise per sq.f which hardly comes to 1000.00 or so.

Could someone help me on this.

I had bought a plot at Kelambakkam during 2010 but never paid any sort of taxes till now. Do we need to pay taxes for vacant plots outside Corp limits? If yes, is it to the VAO or other government authority?

Thanks in advance.

Ref your chitta/patta or A register wherein the tax (theervai in tamil) is mentioned. It is very nominal amount.
