The regulations governing rent agreements in Chhattisgarh are primarily guided by the Chhattisgarh Rent Control Act, 2011. This Act aims to protect the rights of both landlords and tenants and ensure fair practices in the state’s rental market.
It is a legislation that regulates the letting of accommodations and the rent of such accommodations in the state of Chhattisgarh. The Act was passed in 2011 and came into force on May 10, 2012.
The Act applies to all accommodations in Chhattisgarh, except for accommodations that are specifically excluded by the Act. This includes flats, houses, apartments, rooms, and even shops that are let out for residential purposes. The Act defines a “tenant” as a person who occupies an accommodation under a lease.
The Act sets out the terms and conditions on which a lease can be granted.
The Act also sets out the grounds on which a tenant can be evicted.
The Act provides for a Rent Controller (Deputy Collector) to hear and decide disputes between landlords and tenants.
Here are some of the key provisions of the Chhattisgarh Rent Control Act, 2011 related to rent agreements:
The Act also provides for a number of safeguards for tenants, including:
Chhattisgarh has introduced e-stamping as a secure and efficient method for paying stamp duty on legal documents, including rent agreements. E-stamping ensures the authenticity of the document and prevents fraud, offering a reliable way to handle your rent agreement needs.
With eSahayak, you can create your rent agreements online, pay the stamp duty through e-stamping, and receive the digitally signed and stamped agreement without any physical visits or paperwork. Embrace the convenience and reliability of e-stamping for your rent agreements in Chhattisgarh.
For rent agreements in Chhattisgarh, mostly the stamp duty amount is paid using stamp papers with a denomination of Rs. 100 if the agreement duration is less than 11 months.
It is not mandatory for rent agreements with a duration of less than 11 months in Chhattisgarh. However, if you plan to create an agreement for more than 11 months, registration becomes mandatory.
The stamp duty amount for a rent agreement in Chhattisgarh depends on the length of the lease and the annual rent.
The following table shows the stamp duty amounts for different lease periods:
|Term of Lease||Stamp Duty|
|Less than 1 year||2% of the annual rent amount|
|1 year to 5 years||2% of the annual average rent amount|
|5 years to 10 years||1.5 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)|
|10 years to 20 years||3 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)|
|20 years to 30 years||5 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)|
|30 years to 100 years||8 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)|

The rent agreement must be stamped and registered within 30 days of its execution.
The stamp duty can be paid on eSahayak and registration charges for rent agreements can be paid at any sub-registrar’s office in Chhattisgarh. The rent agreement must be executed in the presence of a witness, who must also sign the rent agreement.
