Home buyers to benefit from the circle rate cut

The Delhi government, on February 5, 2021, reduced the circle rates, the minimum price at which a property can be bought, for all categories of properties for the next six months, in a move that will benefit property buyers in the national capital. Experts are hoping that this will boost the real estate market and increase revenue for the government, as well.

Delhi broadly has eight categories of localities – from A to H. Category A being the most affluent one and H being the most economically weaker one. The circle rates are proportionate to the category. The cut in circle rates will allow buyers to get their property registered at 20% below the government-prescribed rates and save money on stamp duty payment.

Update on December 28, 2020:
