How to calculate stamp duty in Gujarat?

Suppose that Anand Patel bought a property for Rs 86.75 lakhs in Gujarat. The stamp duty he needs to pay comes to Rs 4,25,075.

Calculation: 86,75,000 x 4.9/100 = Rs 4,25,075.

Stamp duty charges are the same for men and women in Gujarat.

Besides, there may be some additional charges that you incur towards advocate fees as per rate from time to time, folio fees of Rs 10 per page or at the rate as per revisions by the government from time to time and index fees of Rs 50 per copy.

Now, let us see how to calculate the overall cost of the property. Suppose, Anand Patel and Vidushiben Parikh are buying similar properties at the same price (i.e., Rs 86.75 lakhs). Let us see how much each of them has to pay.

Both Patel and Parikh will pay Rs 4,25,075 as stamp duty. However, at the registration stage, Patel will need to pay 1%, that is Rs 86,750.

Rs 86,75,000 x  1/100 = Rs 86,750. 

Hence, the overall cost for Patel is:

Rs 86,75,000 + 4,25,075 + 86,750 = Rs 91,86,825. 

In the case of Parikh, only stamp duty charges will apply, since women are exempt from registration charges and therefore, her overall cost comes to Rs 91,00,075.
