Alternatively, applicants may search for their AO Code in the AO Code Search as per the guidelines below.


  1. Applicants will search their AO Code by selecting the city based on the Office / Residence Address as the case may be. For detail see Table II & III.
  2. If the applicant knows his Ward/Circle/Range/Commissioner details, he / she will search for the particular Assessing Officer (AO) description in the column 'Ward/Circle/Range/Commissioner'.
