What is Jantri Rate?
Jantri rates are the government-calculated rates of land and property in Gujarat below which a property can’t be registered in the government’s records. This means that stamp duty and registration charges Gujarat are calculated based on the jantri rate value of the property in Gujarat. Also known as the annual statement of rates for stamp duty, Jantri rate is, thus, the same as the more commonly used term – circle rates. The Gujarat state government is responsible for revising the jantri rate periodically and these rates are different for each area in the state.
