How to calculate stamp duty in Pune?

Buyers have to pay the rate fixed on the overall value of the property. However, to arrive at the property value, the buyer must first find out the circle rate in the area in which the property is located.

What is ready reckoner rate?

The ready reckoner rate (RR), as it is known across Maharashtra, or the circle rate, is the government-fixed rate, below which a property cannot be sold in an area. In a scenario where the seller has priced the property at less than the government-fixed ready rates, the stamp duty calculation will still be based on the RR rates.

By multiplying the circle rate with the area of the property, the buyer can calculate the value of the property and then calculate the stamp duty.

Example

Suppose Ram Kumar is buying a home which has a carpet area of 300 sq metres. The property is at Baner, where the circle rate is Rs 42,760 per sq metre. In this case the overall value of the property will be:

Carpet area x rate per sq metre = Property value

400 x 42,760 = Rs 12,828,000

Considering the stamp duty in Pune at 5% of the property value, Kumar will have to pay Rs 6,41,400 as stamp duty. Since the property’s worth is over Rs 30 lakhs, Kumar will be paying an additional Rs 30,000 as the registration charge.
