Karnataka government’s to cut guidance value, can boost property market!

karnataka-governments-to-cut-guidance-value-can-boost-property-market

Last week Finance Minister R. Ashoka said, that the government is considering revising the guidance value by December. Any reduction will be made in overall Karnataka, with the exception of industrial areas and areas along the highways.

Discussions in the state government about the decline in the guidance values ​​have encouraged developers and potential home buyers. This will spur the real estate sector showing signs of improvement after the second wave of Covid-19.

A lower guidance value is expected to boost the number of property registrations, which in turn will increase government revenue. About 2.1 lakh documents were registered in August, which generated revenue of Rs 1,142 crore, up from Rs 969 crore (1.7 lakh documents) in 2020 and Rs 911 crore in 2019.

What is Guidance Value?

Guidance value is the property’s minimum sale price. The government creates this depending on the area and the type of building. Downward revisions will lead to lower property prices. According to the rules, the government must review the costs every year. In January 2019, the government announced an increment in the range of 5 to 24 percent.

Demands to lower the rates

K.P. Mohanraj, Inspector General of Registration and Commissioner of Stamps, said, the guidance value could not be revised in 2020 due to the pandemic. Since the government wants to accept this year, we started the process. Demands for lower rates have long been heard, which in some areas is very high and leads to overpricing of real estate. For example, the guidance value of a property on MG Road is over Rs 1.9 lakh per square metre. On Lavelle Road it is about Rs 2 lakhs per square metre. Some real estate representatives said that due to the recession associated with Covid, some properties were undervalued and sold.

Government should also provide exemption in stamp duty

MS Shankar, the general secretary of the Forum for People’s Collective Efforts, said a decrease in the guidance value will have an impact on the property tax. The news added to the positive sentiment, especially in the wake of the recent property tax euro caused by BBMP’s erroneous zoning. The government should also consider reducing the stamp duty on property registrations across all price ranges.

Suresh Hari, chairman of CREDAI-Bangalore, said, while we welcome the government’s plans to lower the guidance value, we hope the government also takes into account the underlying realities before concluding the final rates. He added that real estate sales have reached 30 percent from the level before covid.

Bengaluru has Impact Of IT, ITES on Real Estate.

Advantages like available skilled workforce, a high quality of living and better career prospects are at Bengaluru but factors like the cost of real estate and ready access to international destinations also matters a lot.

Services such as call centers, transcription, data processing, online education, etc are included in ITES which has made a huge impact on international workflow into India, mainly because of low communication costs and the financial sense behind outsourcing non-core activities. It is an obvious advantage for any modern city to have a significant presence of this industry, which creates white-collar, high-profile jobs and has remarkable effects on its real estate market.

Commercial developments in the city have been done by the private sector and the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), which controls the growth process of the city.

The city’s commercial market has three spatial limits – central business district (CBD), suburban and peripheral. Bengaluru has no true concept of a CBD which resulted in business growth from MG Road to other main roads such as Residency Road, Richmond Road and Brigade Road, Infantry Road and Cunningham Road.

Some of the prominent streets in prime off-CBD areas in Bengaluru are Commercial Street, Infantry Road, Cunningham Road, Richmond Road, Residency Road, Millers Road, St Mark’s Road, Vittal Mallya Road and Lavelle Road. The advantages they offer are reduced congestion, the availability of space and proximity to the City Centre.

Bengaluru suburbs are classified as areas near to Airport Road, Koramangala, Indira Nagar and Jaya Nagar. The peripheral areas consist of Bellary Road, Whitefield and Bannerghatta Road.
