In case you wish to purchase a property in Kolkata, you must understand that it is mandatory to register your property under the Registration Act. Stamp duty payment and registration charges is an integral part of this process.
Property purchasers must know that when they buy a property (land, flat, etc.), the value of the property is not the only thing that is involved with the process. In order to register the property with the Government, there are other fees and charges that one must pay. In case of a fraudulent activity or dispute, their properties are safe if they are registered. So, if you are planning to buy a house, consider the Stamp Duty and Registration Charges along with the cost of the property.
The Stamp Duty rate in Kolkata depends on the area where the flat or land is situated and the present value of the property in the market. The stamp duty charges in Kolkata are mentioned below:
|Location of the Property||Less than Rs.25 lakh||Above Rs.40 lakh|
|Corporation(Howrah or Kolkata) area||6.00%||7.00%|
|Notified area / Municipality / Municipal Corporation||6.00%||7.00%|
|Areas that are not included in the above mentioned categories||5.00%||6.00%|
Stamp Duty & Property Registration Charges
So, all properties that are situated in the notified areas and Kolkata metropolitan area, the stamp duty is fixed at 6% if the cost of the property is less than Rs.25 lakh. In case, the value of the property is above Rs.40 lakh, the stamp duty stands at 7% of the value of the property. If the property that you wish to purchase is situated in Panchayat areas, a stamp duty of 5% will be levied on properties that cost less than Rs.25 lakh. For properties that are above Rs.40 lakh and are situated in the Panchayat areas come with a stamp duty of 6%.
The value of the property plays a major role in the determination of Property Registration Charges in Kolkata. For the properties that cost more Rs.25 lakh, 1% of the total cost of the property must be paid as registration charge.
You must understand that the calculation of these charges are not done on the basis on the transaction value between the buyer and the seller. The charges are calculated as per the current market value of the property.
