New Delhi, August 13
The Municipal Commissioner, Mr Rakesh Mehta, said that the reduced stamp duty would be valid only up to March 31 next year. It would then revert to the original five per cent. The transfer duty on immovable property was recently reduced from 5 to 3 per cent.

The total transfer duty taken by the property owners was 13 per cent of the total price of the immovable property in which the Delhi Government’s share was eight per cent while the MCD’s share was five per cent.

The commissioner said that the Minister of Finance, Delhi Government, Mr Mahinder Singh Sathi, had proposed a reduction of stamp duty on legal instruments relating to the sale of immovable property from eight to five per cent.

He said that the MCD would also reduce the transfer duty so that the overall total charge would become 8 per cent of transaction instead of 13 per cent at present. The MCD had announced the reduction of transfer duty following a notification issued on June 2, 2003 and after approval of the corporation, the stamp duty was reduced by two per cent.

The commissioner said that now the Lt-Governor, Mr Vijay Kapoor, had decided that the reduction in the rate of transfer duty should be applicable to all the instruments of conveyance, exchange, mortgage, gift, lease, power of attorney for consideration, reconveyance, transfer of lease and trust. Further, it has also been decided that the reduced rates would be valid only up to 31March, 2004.
