Stamp duty calculation
Buyers have to pay the stamp duty based on the transaction value as specified in the sale agreement. However, the property cost must be calculated based on the current circle rates* and the stamp duty must be calculated accordingly. In case the house is being registered at a value higher than the circle rate, the buyer will have to pay the stamp duty on the higher amount. If the property is being registered at a value less than the circle rate, the stamp duty will be calculated as per the circle rates.
Alternatively, buyers can also visit the Haryana Jamabandi website, to calculate the stamp duty.
All you have to do is key in the transaction value, select municipality and your gender and hit ‘Calculate’. The stamp duty and registration charges will reflect on the screen.

* Circle rate hike in Haryana
The Haryana government, in April 2021, announced a hike in the circle rates, which would result in the rates of properties increasing by up to 80% in some areas of Gurgaon. The decision by the state would be detrimental to the residential market in the Millennium City.
“We have to look at states that are trying to help the buyers save money in these challenging times. We have examples where states have reduced stamp duty, and Gurgaon has gone ahead with an increase in circle rates. We request the administration to deliberate on the ways to help the real estate sector in the city. The demand in the city is high and we have been witnessing a good number of sales; this will automatically mean good revenue. However, increased circle rates will force the buyers to go into a shell, which will affect real estate revival,” said Achal Raina, COO, Raheja Developers.
