  1. Factors affecting the stamp duty

Stamp duty is calculated on the market value of the property. However, factors like the age of the property and the property owner, type of the property (residential/commercial/industrial), gender of the owner, location of the property (urban/rural), amenities offered, etc decide the stamp duty of any property.

  1. Calculating stamp duty and registration charges for open plots in Hyderabad

Let us assume that Mr. X is interested in a plot sized 2000 sft in a specific area in Hyderabad. The land rate in this area is Rs 5000 per sft.  Now, the market value for the plot will be 5000 X 2000 = Rs. 1,00,00,000. The stamp duty (let us assume that it is a municipal property) will be 4% of the market value (1,00,00,000) = Rs. 4,00,000. Registration charges (0.5%) of 1,00,00,000 = Rs. 50,000 The total stamp duty and registration charges for this plot would be Rs. 4,00,000 + Rs. 50,000 = Rs. 4,50,000.

Therefore, Mr.X has to pay a total of Rs. 1,00,00,000 + Rs. 4,50,000 = Rs. 1,04,50,000 to buy this specific plot.

  1. Apart from the above discussed, there is a checklist with a few items – like sale deed document, title deed document, necessary approvals from the local governing body, etc., – that should be thoroughly looked at and researched before buying a plot.
