Noida may hike stamp duty on sale, transfer of property in 'premium' areas
Posted on Jul 26, 2016
NEW DELHI: The Uttar Pradesh government's proposal to increase circle rates in Noida is in complete contrast to what has been recently witnessed in Gurgaon, Haryana and is also being currently evaluated by Delhi, says rating agency ICRA.

The proposal, which was open for public opinion until July 25, 2016, involves increasing the circle rates ranging from 15% to 25%.

"This, along with the proposed increase in the stamp duty in Noida from 5% to 7%, will further lead to a rise in the acquisition cost of real estate at a time when the industry demand is already muted," says the agency.

The circle rate is the minimum rate at which a transfer/registration of a property takes place and the government earns revenue by levying stamp duty on the registration value.

In ICRA's view, the suggested increase in both the minimum circle rates and the stamp duty is being viewed with caution in the backdrop of a slowdown in demand for real estate. Such a move will increase the cost of acquisition for the buyers. For the residential properties, the hike proposed is up to 15% while circle rates for institutional properties have been proposed to be increased by up to 25%.

Shubham Jain, vice president, ICRA said the proposal to increase the circle rates as well as the stamp duty in Noida will be a credit negative for the Noida developers.

"Market participants are already facing liquidity constraints with slowing sales velocity and consequent increase in pressure on their cash flows. Such a move that increases the cost of acquisition may result in a further delay in the purchasing decision of the buyer. In addition, neighbouring cities like Gurgaon may benefit where the respective state government had reduced the circle rates recently," he said.

ICRA pointed out that in many micro markets, the market rates are lower than the circle rates. Market participants fear that in such a situation any further increase in circle rates may not be beneficial for the real estate sector.
