What Is the Impact of Circle Rates on Taxation in Delhi?


According to Section 56 (2) (x) of the IT Act, both buyer and seller are liable to pay additional capital gains tax if the agreement value is higher than circle rates.

Recently, the government determined that individuals do not have to bear the brunt of this additional tax liability. It increased the gap between circle rate and agreement value. Initially, it was 10% and currently, it doubled to 20% for new houses (residential) worth up to ₹2 crores.

This means that real estate developers can now sell a property at 20% lower than the applicable circle rate without incurring additional tax expenses. A real estate developer can transfer this benefit to new home buyers by offering them discounts. This reduces the cost of purchasing a home.

To understand it, let’s take an example -

As per the example mentioned above, homebuyers can maximise their total savings with this new development.

Experts suggest extending the circle rates in Delhi to benefit both the estate developers and homebuyers. According to the latest development, the Delhi government is also planning to do the same. If it does, this will provide significant financial relief amid the current economic slowdown.

Reduced circle rates are also expected to boost the state government revenue. Hence, it is viable for real estate developers, homebuyers and the government as well.
