The revenue department of the city's government has prepared a proposal which also favours to increase circle rate on agriculture land and farmhouses by up to 100 percent and 150 percent respectively.
At present, flats do not come under categorisation (from A to H for houses) prescribed by municipal corporations for tax collection due to which they have a uniform circle rate of Rs 58,000 per square metre, according to officials.
The department has sent the proposal to the government for its approval.
"As per proposal if approved, an owner of a flat will have to pay more stamp duty as per the current categorisation of areas from A to H,” a senior government official said.
"For instance, a person wanting to buy a flat in south Delhi will have to pay more stamp duty to get his property registered in comparison to another person buying flats in Alipur area of north-west Delhi," he said.
