Punjab government has also already launched online property tax calculator through which you can calculate your property tax easily.

By filling necessary required information about your property you can get exact figure of your annual property tax. These revolutionary steps indicate that Punjab government is going to computerize all the departments of government.
E governance is the first step towards good governance. Excise department is most notorious department in Pakistan but now these brilliant steps will be helpful in controlling the corruption and bribery in this department. Punjab government is also going to computerize all the record of land and revenue department. We welcome these positive changes but still there is need for improvement in police, education courts and other departments of government. Other provinces should also introduce e governance to facilitate the public.
