What are the stamp duty and registration charges for rental agreement registration in Bangalore?

Registration of rental agreement is mandatory for a rental period of more than 11 months

Below are the government charges for registration of rental agreement

  • Stamp Duty: 1%
  • Registration fee: 0.5%
  • Scanning fee: Rs. 500 (approx)

Formula to calculate stamp duty and registration fee: Average annual rent + GST at 18% + Security deposit

For example:

  • Monthly rent Rs. 25000
  • Security deposit Rs. 1,00,000
  • Duration: 12 Months
  • Average annual rent: 25000X12/12= 25000
  • GST at 18%: 25000*18% = 4500

Formula & Calculation : Average annual rent + GST at 18% + security deposit so 25000+4500+100000= 1,29,500/-

  • Stamp Duty at 1%: 1,29,500 X 1% = 1,295
  • Registration fee at 0.5%: 1,29,500 X 0.5% =647.5 (round off Rs. 648)
