Calculate Stamp Duty and Property Registration Charges in Andhra Pradesh

On the basis of the Ready Reckoner Rate (RRR) or the market value, the property stamp duty and registration charges are calculated. 

Here is how you calculate the house registration charges:

If the RRR of a specific property/area is INR 8,000 per Sq. Ft and the purchase of the property was made at the market rate of INR 10,000 Sq Ft. In that case, the property charges and stamp duty can be calculated in an amount that may vary between INR 8,000 per sq ft and INR 10,000.

Let’s Get a Better Understanding with Examples:

If the RRR is INR 35 lakh and the net value of the transaction is INR 40 lakh, then the stamp duty will be calculated at 5 percent.

Stamp duty will be equivalent to 5 percent of higher RRR or true transaction value (5 precent of INR 35 lakhs or INR 40 lakh).

  • 40,00,000×5/100 = 2,00,000. 

Land registration charges will be equivalent to 1 percent of higher RRR or true transaction value (1 percent of INR 35 lakhs or INR 40 lakhs)

  • 40,00,000×1/100 = 40,000

Transfer duty will be equivalent to 1.5 percent of higher RRR or true transaction value (1.5 precent of INR 35 lakhs or INR 40 lakhs

  • 40,00,000×1.5/100 = 60,000

The structure of the net charge on the property will look like this:

  • Stamp duty fee: INR 2,00,000
  • Registration charge: INR 40,000
  • Transfer duty: INR 60,000

Net registration costing over the value of property: 60,000+40,000+2,00,000 = INR 3,00,00

Note: Ready Reckoner Rate is the minimum value set by the government. It is based on the which the property transaction takes place. In case of lower transaction value the prevailing RRR of a locality by 10 percent or more then it may lead to a tax burden on the property seller or the buyer.
