Mangaluru City Corporation to Test New Commercial License Software from October 2 | Mangaluru News


MANGALURU: Starting October 2, Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) will launch a trial of its new commercial license software. With civic body board approval, the trial, which could last two to three weeks, will help MCC resolve issues in the online rollout of business licensing. Training will be provided to officials and applicants for a commercial license on the use of the software, said MCC commissioner Akshy Sridhar.
The software will help people submit new business license applications, renew their existing business license, cancel it, upload business documents and photos, and pay online business license fees, Sridhar told the journalists here. Officials will use the software to approve the license, print it, and even notify applicants of the status of their application online. Each of the business licenses will be geotagged to prevent misuse or duplication, Sridhar said.
The state-owned company Keonics Ltd which developed the software for the MCC will provide a mobile application for license applicants, MCC health officials / inspectors, portal surveillance management system as well as a hardware application. . Deploying this software with a few tweaks will allow MCC to provide people with more online payment options, including their water bills, which they’ve done manually at banks or at Mangalore One, Sridhar said. .
The process for people to pay their property tax online with a property tax calculator is also in the final stages of implementation. “We plan to roll out the process from December 1,” Sridhar said, adding that servers for this are being configured. The MCC has also extended the deadline for people to pay their property tax under the self-assessment scheme without fines until October 31 and a 2% fine will be levied from November 1.
On the high court which returned MCC on Monday for its solid waste management following a pile of trash at its Pacchanady landfill that crashed into households and farmland last year, Sridhar stated that MCC will comply with all of the order guidelines once they get a copy of the same. The HC had disapproved of the state government remaining a silent bystander of the roughly 200 tonnes of garbage dumped illegally every day in Pacchanady.
