Reformation in stamp duty and registration charges in UP

The UP government notified new stamp duty rates on property registration fees in February 2020 and other transactions under which the maximum cap of INR 20,000 on the transaction was removed. The registration fee is calculated at 1% of the total transaction value. For example, if the property is registered at INR 1 crore that INR 1 lakhs will be levied as registration charges.

Due to the pandemic, the property sales was dipped, and hence the UP RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority) and NAREDCO (The National Real Estate Developers Council) requested the government to reduce the stamp duty and registration charges to encourage homebuyers to invest in real estate. The reduction would also help the developers to clear the unsold inventory.

The UP RERA requested for the change in stamp duty and registration charges post observing similar actions taken in states like Maharashtra and Karnataka to boost property sales. There is no action taken yet by the UP government on reducing stamp duty and registration fees.
