Guidance value is the minimum value at which the property can be registered. This rate is published by the Department of Stamps and Registration of every state yearly. If you have heard of the guidance value and you will like to know more about it, here we will take you through the details.

We will be talking about the different details with regards to the guidance value and also offer the key steps regarding how you can procure it. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the details so that you will be better equipped to know more about it.

The Key Facts

When we are making a discussion about the guidance value Bangalore, you may also find the use of terms like Ready Reckoner Rate or even RR Rate. Circle rate is another term that means mostly the same thing. All these terms are used for different states but mostly refer to the same thing.

So, regardless of the term you are using, there are a few facts and information that you need to be familiar with. Here, we are going to tell you about these details and this will prepare you better to know what is guidance value and how you can make the most of it.

The guidance value is basically like the fixed price of a certain property. You will not be able to go down below this value.

If you have managed to sell a property at a value which is higher than the BBMP guidance value, when you carry out the property registration, it will be done as per this higher value

If by chance, you have managed to buy a property at a lower value, when you will pay the stamp duty, it has to be paid by the guidance value.  There is also another key condition to keep in mind. As per the income tax act, if the stamp duty value is more than the purchase consideration, then the difference in amount between the stamp duty value and the consideration of purchase will also be treated as income. This will be filed under income from other sources.

The guidance value depends upon the area and the locality. A well-connected locality is likely to have a higher guidance value than areas that are either under-developed or still developing

If you find that a property is being sold for a value less than the guidance value, you need to be thorough with the documentation. The seller may be doing so to evade taxes

The seller can sell the property for any price that falls between the guidance and the market value.

The Reduction In Sub Registrar Guidance Value In Bangalore 

The Karnataka government announced that they cut down the property sub registrar guidance value in the city of Bangalore by a whopping 10% for three months. The exact period for this event is April 25th, 2022 to July 24th, 2022.

The government believes that the slashing of charges has ensured that a lot more registrations have happened. So, the decision seems to be a win-win case for both. While the government has been able to make revenues, the public too has benefitted from the slashed prices.

The Kaveri online guidance value has also seen a reduction for three months as it will be applicable for both sale and purchase for all property types.

The Karnataka government wanted to promote people to purchase different kinds of properties be it flats, buildings, and even lands and this is why they decided to slash the guidance value. The government believes that this offer is mainly for those who are simply pushing time even after getting different documents. This reduced pricing could help such people in saving their money and getting the property deal finalized at the same time.

Government Updates

The government is aware of the fact that the reduction is going to impact the net revenue the government generates out of the process, but in the end, it will largely benefit the people. The Kaveri online guidance value is one of the biggest sources of revenue generation for the state government.

The stamp registration department of the state makes it a point to revise the guideline value Bangalore at periodic intervals. The main reason why they do so is to ensure that the guidance value and the market value can stay matched as closely as possible. This is because if there is a huge difference, there is a greater chance of black money laundering and even cash transactions that happen under the table. This ends up greatly impacting the overall revenue of the government. These transactions are never accounted for in the books of records.

A new proposition has been put into place by the Urban Development Department. They think that from the FY 2021-22, the BBMP should adopt the guidance value method rather than sticking to the unit area value method when calculating the property taxes. But, likely, this new method will not be adopted until the economy stabilizes completely.

The government has a dedicated Kaveri website in place for the sake of calculating the guidance value and helping people know all the latest property and even government land rates from the comfort of their homes. The whole process has been very simplified and made very easy to access as well.

So, let us check out the details of the steps.
