How to Calculate Circle Rate in Delhi?

2. Note the right property type: flat, plot, house, builder floor, etc.

3. Check the circle rate in Delhi as per the locality of the property.

4. Arrive at the minimum assessment value using the following calculations:

  • For plot: Area of the plot (sq. yard) X circle rate (Rs. per sq. yard)
  • For apartment: Built-up area (sq. feet) X circle rate (Rs. per sq. feet)
  • For builder floors on an independent plot: [Built-up area (sq. feet) X circle rate (Rs. per sq. feet) X construction age factor] + [proportion share in plot area (sq. meter) X circle rate (Rs. per sq. meter)]
  • For independent house: [Plot area (sq. yard) X circle rate in the area (Rs. per sq. yard)] + [Built-up area (sq. feet) X minimum cost of construction (Rs. per sq. feet) X construction age factor]
