In 2016 the civic body started disconnecting water connections of defaulters for three weeks to recover tax dues, besides sealing lifts and entrances of concerned properties.

While presenting the budget for FY 20-21, the BMC commissioner had said property tax of around 15,000 crore had not been paid.

In 2019-20, the BMC had targeted to collect 5,015.19 crore in property tax, but till November-end it had collected only 1,387 crore.
