Registration charges in Mumbai for a property worth Rs. 30,00,000 is Rs. 30,000 and for property worth less than that, 1% of the property value is levied as stamp duty.
Stamp duty in Mumbai depends on a lot of factors. One such factor is the location or area of the property. This is because stamp duty rates in Mumbai are calculated based on the circle rate or ready reckoner rate and market value of the property, as mentioned in the agreement.
Current stamp duty rates in Mumbai are as follows:
|Area or Location of the Property
|Stamp Duty Rates
|Within boundaries of gram panchayat
|3% of market value of the property
|Within boundaries of the municipality in an urban area
|5% of market value of the property
|Within boundaries of municipality/ panchayat or cantonment of any area under Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority
|4% of market value of the property
Among the various deciding factors, the type of property deed makes a difference in stamp duty rates paid in different parts of Maharashtra. The following table explains different stamp duty rates in Mumbai, Maharashtra as per Article 34 of the Bombay Stamp Act.
|Types of Deeds
|Stamp Duty Rate
|Power of attorney(PoA)
|Municipal areas – 5%Gram Panchayat – 3%
|Gift deed given to members of family, (residential or agricultural property)
The calculation process for registration charges and stamp duty on properties in Mumbai, Maharashtra, is done considering parameters based on which the rate varies.
Two parameters are considered while calculating stamp duty — guidance value and property market value.
Let’s look at this illustration for a better understanding.
Suppose there is a flat of 1000 square metres in Malad with a guidance rate of Rs. 65,000 per square metre.
So, the market value of that flat will be –
Size of flat x Guidance value= 1000 x 65,000= Rs. 6,50,00,000
Now, the stamp duty rate for Malad is 5%. So the stamp duty rate of that property will be-
6,50,00,000 X 5%= Rs. 32,50,000.
The property worth is more than Rs. 30,00,000. So, the registration fee will be Rs. 30,000.
