Stamp Duty, Registration charges for Flats, Land and Property in Bangalore

Stamp duty and Registration costs are associated with the purchase of a flat. Stamp duty and Registration charges vary from state to state. These are payable under Section 3 of the Indian Stamp Act, 1899The government collects these Charges to validate sale agreements as well as to keep a record of it.

A sale deed on which stamp duty is paid is a proper and legal document. It can work as an evidence in courts. The buyer bears the cost of stamp duty as well as registration cost. These charges are fixed by the state government.

Respective state governments declare the Guidance Value. Guidance value is of two types. Land Value and Composite value. Composite value comprises of land value as well as the value of the building. Once in every 3-4 years, the guidance value increases. One can’t sell a property below guidance value. So the saleable value of the property should actually be the guidance value or the market value, whichever is greater.

Flat, Land and Property Stamps and Registration charges in Bangalore (also valid all over Karnataka)

Stamp Duty works out to be 5.6% in Urban Areas and 5.65% in Rural Areas. Registration charges are 1% of the property value. One can find the cost of such stamp duty and registration charges in Karnataka Government Portal.

How the Flat, Land and Property Stamp duty and Registration charges are calculated?

For an example, Consider an area in Bangalore i.e. “Binnamangala Hutting Colony”. The guidance value of “Binnamangala Hutting Colony” is Rs. 4,805 per square feet as per BBMP in effect from 1st of April 2017. This implies the property registration value of Binnamangala Hutting Colony must not be below Rs. 4,805 per square feet. It may be higher, but must not be below it. Since this Area is under Bangalore Urban, the stamp duty charges will be 5.6% of guidance value or the market value, whichever is greater.

Let’s consider a person “Anand” who wants to buy a land in Binnamangala Hutting Colony. The property measures 1,200 sq. ft. The value of the property for sale is equal to guidance value. Now the calculation goes as below.

The Guidance value of the property will be Rs. 4805 times 1,200. So, it is Rs. 57,66,000.

Stamp Duty Charges=5.6% of saleable value (Rs.57,66,000 lakh) =Rs. 3,22,896.

Registration Charges=1% of saleable value (Rs.57,66,000 lakh) =Rs. 57,660.

The total Stamp Duty and Registration charges will be Rs.3,22,896+Rs. 57,660=3,80,556.

Anand needs to pay the saleable value of the property, Stamp Duty and Registration Charges i.e. Rs. 61,46,556.

Notes To Be Remembered:

  • Nowadays e-Stamp papers are available.
  •  e-Stamping is nothing but a stamp paper generated through a computer based application and a secure way of paying Non-Judicial stamp duty to the Government.
  • Few advantages of e-Stampings - Certificate can be generated within minutes, Certificate generated is tamper proof, the authenticity of the certificate can be checked through the inquiry module, it, as has a Unique Identification Number (UIN) and specific denomination, is not required.

    Please include details on how to arrive at value of resale flat based on age of flat. Is it only based on guidance value or there is a calculation to consider depreciated value of the flat?

    • Zadmin

      Dear Muttu,
      We are going to explain in detail in our coming blog posts about how to arrive at the value of resale flat based on the age.
      Actually, there are lot more other factors which are to be included to calculate the value of the property.
      Unfortunately, In Karnataka, there is no such concept of depreciation applicable while calculating the resale value of the flat.
      In other places like Pune, Mumbai and some other states there are clear guidelines on depreciation and its use for resale properties.
      In Our next blogs, we will definitely come with some solutions you face.

      Thanks and Regards,

  • Roy

    can you pls confirm if the Home loan (nationalized Bank)
    is sanctioned as per Agreement Value or Guidance Value of the property (Resell Independent House


    • Zadmin

      Dear Mr. Roy,
      In this case the bank will do an independent valuation of the property. We call that as consideration value.
      For Example, you want to buy a property whose guidance value is 50,00,000 Rs. As per Agreement, it is 1.2cr.
      So The nationalized bank won't sanction 1.2 cr. After valuation, let's say the price came to be 80,00,000 INR.
      So the bank will sanction 80% of the consideration price.
