Shelter charges and guideline value in Chennai
Recently, the Tamil Nadu government constituted a state shelter fund to rehabilitate the urban poor. New commercial, industrial, residential and institutional buildings across the state, with a floor space of over 3,000 sq metres, will be liable to pay shelter charges of between 1% and 3%, based on their guideline value per sq metre. The Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning (Levy of Shelter Charges and State Shelter Fund) Rules, 2020, will be applicable to areas covered by the provisions of the Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning Act, 1971.
Registration fee slashed
In a bid to encourage home buying and registrations, the registration and finance departments of Tamil Nadu are planning to slash the registration charges on joint venture (JV) projects, which form the bulk of residential and commercial developments being undertaken in the state, from 11% of the guideline value to only 2%. The idea is to encourage more JV projects to get registered, as these would add to the state’s revenue. The feasibility study for this is ongoing.
