The last revision was in 2007 and the current revision rates in line with the prevailing market prices. This exercise will help increase the revenue from this levy.
Government of Tamil Nadu, after 2007 guidelines value did not increase since it increased the current value is about two to three fold.
Thus, the the black money transfer in property registor greatly reduced. At the same time, the amount will be spent by public significantly increasing
Before April 1, 2012 in Tamil Nadu, the stamp duty of 6%, surcharge of 2% and registration fee of 1%, total 9% are set for real estate property registration. After April 1, 2012, the stamp duty of 5%, surcharge of 2% & registration fee of 1%, total are set for plot of land and house property registration
In the Tamil Nadu state, land value is unlikely to be below Rs.1 lakh an acre anywhere. So, low land values have been largely corrected that is increased in many fold.
Notional Increase..!Some common people are very happy that by increase in guideline value their plot of land and house property price will be increased but it is a notional increase. You have to see whether any buyer for your property based on the new guideline value. Otherwise, buyer may want to buy the property at a price lesser than new guideline value which could be the actual market value, whereas property will be registered with new guideline value forcing buyer to pay stamp duty (7%) and registration charges (1%) on new guideline value.
If Seller feels that why should he/she sell the property less than guideline value, then he/she may not sell the property.
On the other hand, if one says , whatever increase in new guideline value, I may not sell the property in near future, then it is only paper profit for them & they need not worry about increase in guideline value.
Sluggish Real Estate Business..!
But those buy the properties also, will not register the property in their name instead they may go for Irrevocable power of Attorney, which cost only Rs.10,000 as stamp duty. In such sense, there will not be any sluggish in real estate business.
