Karnataka Slashes Property Guidance Values by 10% for an Additional Three Months

Policy Update May 16, 2022

The guidance value of a given property is the minimum price set by the government below which the sale of that property cannot take place. Various environmental factors such as the locality and the type of structure are taken into account when the guidance value of a property is evaluated [1]. In some states, the guidance value of a property is also referred to as its circle rate.

In a bid to increase property registrations, the government of Karnataka announced a reduction of 10% in guidance values from Jan 1, 2022, initially for a period of 3 months [2]. However, with clarity in the popularity of the decision, in addition to the surplus in revenue generated by the Department of Stamps and Registrations, the government in April decided to extend this period by three months, from April 25, 2022 to July 24, 2022 [3].
