Another reason to rejoice and own a home in India’s most livable city i.e. Bangalore is that the homebuyers will now get a discount on stamp duty during 2021-22. The government of Karnataka has reduced the stamp duty from 5% to 3% for affordable segment apartments that are priced between Rs 35 – 45 lakh. This cut in stamp duty is valid for a period of one year. The State government is looking to boost affordable housing sales in Karnataka where Bangalore is the largest real estate market.
