 CC certificate can not be issued unless the entire dues are cleared, the rules can not permit issuing such any certificate to a builder by authorities.  This is applicable for each and every certificate from the public authority.   While issuing certificates the first thing they have to do is to settle the account first.  After getting a clearance certificate from Accounts officer only on such application form, further processing begins.

What are the facts? What is the context?

MANN   14 June 2020

Sir when we enquired at corporation they are telling builder had not paid tax. So our question was that whether builder can get Completion Certificate without payment of Tax and other dues.

Take authentic information from the Corporation itself through process of RTI.


Information solicited

1. Please provide a copy of laid down norms that state for giving a completion certificate with such checklist if any.

2. Please provide a copy of the rule under which Builder can get a completion certificate without paying such taxes to the corporation on the day of such issue of the certificate.


Apart from all this what is the TAX, who should pay for that, in whose name was the property during such period of tax assessment., even if the builder pays the tax without using it or residing it or owning it, can he not recover the same from owners as the apartment is in the name of such owners.  Why the completion certificate was delayed and whether such an assessment of tax is proper in law. (As an association/society your office bearers should find out the liability through corporation and other advocates depending on such facts and should proceed as group, as one individual can not fight alone against corporation or builder)

Completion certificate and property tax are two different issues which has no relevance / nexus / connection with each other.

Completion certificate is to be issued by concerned Development Authoirty which had sanctioned building plans after physical inspection by various authorities sucih as Urban Art Commission, City Fire Department, Airport Authority etc. etc.

Property tax is collected by local municipal authorities which is chargable, even on vacant land.
