property tax before obtainig occupation certificate
The builder has offered possession before obtaining Occupation Certificate. The builder stopped paying the temporary leave license rent hence the members have occupied a flat in a redeveloped society. The society has a small “pathology Clinic” in a first floor flat above the stilt ,approved by MCGM – DCR 51(i), permissible in a residential flat.
MY queries are:
1. Who is liable to pay property tax before obtaining Occupation Certificate? builder , society or member?
2.Can MCGM charge capital based property tax as a ‘shop’ assessed 7.8 times the residential tax to a pathology clinic.
3. Can a small pathology clinic be considered a commercial establishment? healthcare professional are exempted from shop establishment license and GST.
