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.
