Stamp Duty and Registration Fees in Ranchi 2024: The Indian Registration Act of 1908 mandates that sale deeds be registered. The only document that formally certifies a buyer’s ownership of real estate is a registered sale deed. When registering a house in Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, buyers must pay the registration cost and stamp duty, just like they must for any other home purchase in the nation. This tutorial outlines these fees and how they will affect the total amount you pay for buying a house.

What is the stamp duty?

States in India impose stamp duty as a levy on several types of transactions to raise money. Since land is one of the most traded assets, jurisdictions impose stamp duty at different rates on transactions involving immovable property. State-by-state variations in rates result in an average range of 3% to 8% of the property value.

Stamp duty and registration charges in Ranchi in 2024

Gender Stamp duty Registration charge as percentage of the property value
Men 4% 3%
Women 4% 3%
Joint 4% 3%

Stamp duty and registration fees amount to 7% of the deal value for property buyers in Ranchi, regardless of gender. The buyer will have to pay an extra Rs 3.50 lakh for these duties, say if the property is valued at Rs 50 lakh.

The Jharkhand government recently rescinded the registration waiver it had given to women. In 2017, the government announced that women would only need to pay a symbolic registration fee of Re 1 for purchases up to Rs 50 lakhs to empower women. However, the state administration reversed the program in May 2020 as a result of the waiver’s enormous financial loss to the public coffers.

How is the stamp duty charge in Ranchi calculated?

Buyers are responsible for paying stamp duty, which is based on the value of the property. This figure cannot be less than the circle rates set by the government and periodically updated. The stamp duty will be determined based on the larger of the two figures.

  • Value averaged according to the circular rate.
  • Purchase price.

In the example above, we assume that a 1,500-square-foot property will be purchased for Rs 1,000 per square foot. To register a property, it must be worth at least Rs 15 lakh (1,500 x 1,000). It is not possible to register a property that sells for less than Rs 15 lakh, even if the seller is willing to sell it for Rs 14 lakh. If the land is being sold for Rs 20 lakh, it must be registered at that price.

In any event, while purchasing real estate in Ranchi, 7% of the total will be paid for stamp duty and registration. Ranchi buyers can go visit to perform the computation.

Explaining Stamp Duty and Registration Charges in Lucknow

How can I pay Ranchi stamp duty offline?

In Ranchi, homebuyers have two options for paying stamp duty offline:

Through franking through authorized banks

In India, banks use franking to pay stamp duty by stamping a property document or affixing a denomination to provide evidence of payment. Banks and other authorized agents use a franking machine to attach the paperwork. The buyer can pay the stamp duty amount at the approved bank connected to the SRO with a demand draft or cash.

Through authorized stamp vendors

An authorized stamp vendor can assist homebuyers in contacting the sub-registrar in the area where the property is located. Following a comprehensive assessment procedure, the responsible officer will advise you of the stamp duty due for that particular document. Thereafter, you can purchase equivalent non-judicial stamp papers from a local authorized stamp vendor.

How can I check Ranchi’s deed registration slots?

After registering a property, you can use the e-Nibandhan portal in Ranchi to see whether any appointment times are still available for property registration.

  • Step 1: To confirm the availability of an appointment time, go to the e-Nibandhan portal.
  • Step 2: To continue, provide the application ID, presenter information, email address, and mobile number. Then, choose an appointment date.

To Conclude,

It is a legal requirement for all homebuyers to pay stamp duty. The planning stage of your house purchase is the critical time to take this additional cost into account, as these fees significantly increase the total cost of purchasing a property. Please be aware that banks do not factor in registration fees or stamp duty when valuing real estate. This implies that you will have to pay for this out of pocket and that it is not something you can borrow from the bank. Additionally, keep in mind that Section 80C of the Income Tax Act allows you to deduct the amount you spend on stamp duty and registration fees. Section 80C covers this relief under a yearly deduction cap of Rs 1.50 lakh.
