What are Circle Rates?

Circle rate, also known as ready-reckoner rates, is the minimum designated price per sq ft for land or property at which transactions have to be registered. These rates are used as a guidance value to keep a check on speculation of the prices of land/property as no transactions can take place below circle rates. The government revises the circle rates from time to time depending on demand, supply and development of the area to assess stamp duty charges and to determine the capital gains on the property for calculation of Income Taxes. In fact, circle rates also vary in different cities in the same state and in different localities of the same city.

How are Circle Rates Calculated?

  • The circle rates as determined by each state varies based on factors such as type of property, usage of the property, area, amenities etc.
  • To calculate the circle rates of your land or property, determine the usage of the property, whether the property is used for residential or commercial purpose. The circle rates are generally higher for commercial property.
  • Now, find the type of property; whether it is a flat, apartment, independent house or a plot of land. The values of property vary even if they fall in the same area.
  • You can calculate the circle rates by visiting the Registration Department or online through your stamps and registration website of your respective state.
