How to determine rateable value of of property for levy of property taxes?

 In Dr.Balbir Singh & ors. v/s. M/s.M.C.D. & Ors., AIR 1985 SC 339, it was held that the ratable value of a building, whether tenanted or self occupied, is limited by the measure of standard rent arrived at by the assessing authority by applying principles laid down in the Rent Act. It has also been held that the test for determining the standard rent is not what the standard rent actually is but the rent which the owner reasonably expects to receive from an hypothetical tenant. Such expectation cannot go beyond the standard rent.
