EXEMPTION FROM THE PAYMENT OF PROPERTY TAX IN RESPECT OF THE BUILDINGS OF RECOGNISED UNADED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS - NSTRUCTIONS TO LOCAL SELF GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS - REG. Local Self Government (RC) Department, No.49590/RC2/2011/LSGD, Tvpm, dt. 12-4-2012) Sub:- LSGD-Exemption from the payment of property taxin respect of the buildings of recognised unaided educational institutions - instructions to Local self Government Institutions - reg Both the Kerala Municipality and the Kerala Panchayat Raj Acts of 1994 set apart provisions for exempting the buildings Owned and Occupied by the educational institutions, recognised by Government and registered with a local body and used for teaching and also libraries open to the public from the payment of property tax. This provision Continued to be inforce until the amendment Acts of 2009 were brought into force w.e.f. 7-10-2009. The amendment stipulates that buildings exclusively used for educational purposes or allied purposes under the ownership of educational institutions owned by the Governmentor functioning with the financial assistance of the Govt. and the hostel buildings where in the students of the said institutions reside shall be eligible to be exempted from the payment of property tax. To be precise the buildings of unaided recognised educational institutions are not eligible for exemption from the payment of property tax with effect from 7-10-2009. Ever since the above amendment Acts of 2009 were introduced, Govt. have been in receipt of a lot of representations from unaided educational institutions, some requesting to extend the benefit since enjoyed by them and some seeking clarification on the date of applicability of the said amendment Acts of 2009 and also criteria deciding the class of institutions eligible for tax exemption. Local Self Govt. institutions were also seen wrongly guided in certain cases when it came to the question of assessment and demand of tax in respect of unaided educational institutions on the basis of the relevant clauses in the Kerala Municipality and the Kerala Panchayat Raj (Amendment) Acts of 2009.
