Whenever any immovable or some kinds of movable asset changes hands, the buyer has to pay a certain amount of tax to the state government, to get it stamped, which is known as stamp duty.
Stamp duty is calculated on the basis of market value of the property involved. The different properties which are exigible to stamp duty in Maharashtra and the rates of tax thereon are given in Sch I and II of The Maharashtra Stamp Act.
According to the Maharashtra Stamp Act, all instruments chargeable with duty and executed in Maharashtra, should be stamped before or at the time of execution, or on the next working day following the date of execution. However, if the deed is executed out of the territory, it can be stamped within three months after it is first received in India.
The Maharashtra Stamp Act has been amended to accept online payment, for stamp duty payable on instruments executed in the state. Follow these steps, to pay your stamp duty online:
Step 1: Visit the Maharashtra Stamp Duty Online Payment Portal.
