The Draft Indian Stamp (Lakshadweep Amendment) Regulation, 2021
The Draft Indian Stamp (Lakshadweep Amendment) Regulation, 2021 is a proposed regulation that would amend the Indian Stamp Act, 1899 in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep. The amendment would introduce a number of changes to the law, including:
- Increasing the stamp duty on property transactions
- Introducing a stamp duty on the lease of immovable property
- Requiring the registration of all immovable property transactions
- Imposing penalties for non-compliance with the registration requirement
The draft regulation has been met with criticism from some quarters, who argue that it would make it more difficult for people to own property in Lakshadweep and would discourage investment in the territory. The government has defended the draft regulation, arguing that it is necessary to raise revenue and to protect the interests of landowners.
The following are some of the key provisions of the draft regulation:
- The stamp duty on property transactions would be increased from 5% to 8%.
- A stamp duty of 1% would be introduced on the lease of immovable property.
- All immovable property transactions would be required to be registered with the Registrar of Assurances.
- A penalty of up to Rs. 10,000 would be imposed for non-compliance with the registration requirement.
