Property registration charges in Bangalore 2018-19 & Stamp duty calculator

Calculation of stamp duty and property registration charges in Bangalore:

At the time of property registration, i.e. registering the sale deed at the sub-registrar, the stamp duty and registration charges need to be paid to the government. These duties and charges are paid with respect to the total sale consideration or guidance value, whichever is higher.

For all practical purposes, the total sale consideration is always higher than the guidance value of the property. Yet, in some cases, we have observed the guidance value of the property to be higher. So, please check the guidance value of the property before arriving at the stamp duties and registration fees. As per the prevalent practices, the charges are borne by the buyer.

    Hi, i understand the stamp duty plus registration plus cess comes to 6.6% in BBMP areas. But BDA website says it is 10%. Can you tell me if that is indeed true? This is the URL where i got this info:

    • Zippserv admin

      Stamp duty and registration fees are determined by Karnataka stamp and registration department under which all sub-registrar offices. You can check the rates at their website.

      BDA is town planning authority, does not do property registration. In their website, it could be a typo or has not updated for years.

    Sale agreement is rs. 56 lakhs but guidance value as per your calculator is coming at Rs. 35 lakhs. so, can I pay the stamp duty on Guidance value.

  • Navin


    My sale agreement value is 31 lakhs while applying for loan but now guidance value is showing as 44.8 lakhs. does my sale deed value should contain 44.8 lakhs or 31 lakhs. please answer?

  • Raju

    Seems quite a useful site. I wish you had detailed info related to sale & purchase by NRIs. Example. With no other income in India is it wise to efile returns (refund for excess TDS on LTCG) for sale proceeds. Or is a CA should do it. What are the pit- falls if CA is not hired? Can some with personal experience throw light? Thanks a lot.
