Section 17 under the Uttar Pradesh Registration Act, 1908 specifies that every property buyer in the state has to register their sale deed in the sub-registrar's office. This is applicable when the transaction is above ₹100.
Hence, every property in UP must be under registration to claim ownership.
Ideally, the stamp duty in UP is applicable if there is a transaction between a property seller and buyer. In UP, it is calculated based on the transaction value’s specific percentage.
The State Government had revised the property registration fee, making it 1% of property cost, formerly ₹20,000.
Homebuyers in Uttar Pradesh must pay stamp duty worth nearly 7% of transaction charges. In addition, they are mandated to register the purchased property under the current circle rate fixed by the Government.
