What are Stamp Duty and Property Registration Charges?

A registry of property documents is maintained by the government against a certain amount of fee charged from the buyers. This fee is known as the registration charge. Stamp duty is a fee levied by the state government based on the transaction value of a property, while property registration charge is the amount a property owner pays to the government for the service of putting the documents in the government record. Generally, buyers have to pay 1% of the total market value of the property as the property registration fees. However, this charge may vary based on the state or the property type.


How are Stamp Duty and Registration Charges Calculated?

Stamp duty rates are decided by the state government and, therefore, they differ across the country, varying from 3% to 10% of the property value. Factors that affect stamp duty rates are the location of the property, the age and gender of the owner, usage of the property, and the property type. To know the approximate amount you are liable to pay, use our Stamp Duty Calculator.

Apart from the stamp duty on property, you need to pay registration charges, which are usually levied by the Central Government and fixed across the state. Generally, 1% of the property’s total market value is charged as the registration charge. However, this charge may vary based on the property type and state.

Check the following example to know how to use the stamp duty calculation formula:​


Cost of the property: Rs.60 Lakh​​

​​​Stamp duty rate in Delhi: 6%​​

​​​Stamp duty payable: 6% of Rs.60 Lakh = Rs.3.6 Lakh​​

​​​Registration charges payable: 1 % of Rs.60 Lakh = Rs.60,000​​

​​​Here, the total amount payable on stamp duty and registration charges will be Rs.4,20,000​​.
