  2. Late Payment Penalty: Outline the penalty or additional charges that the tenant may incur for delayed rent payments.

  12. Use of Property: Outline the permissible use of the property by the tenant and any restrictions or prohibitions on certain activities.

Assam Tenancy Act, 2021

In Assam, the regulations governing rent agreements are primarily guided by the Assam Tenancy Act, 2021. This Act aims to ensure fair practices and protect the rights of both landlords and tenants in the state.

The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 is a legislation that regulates tenancy in the state of Assam. The Act was passed in 2021 and came into force on September 23, 2021. The Act repeals the Assam Urban Areas Rent Control Act, 1972.

Here are some of the specific key points of the Act:

  • The Act caps the rent that can be charged for a premises.
  • The Act prohibits landlords from evicting tenants without a valid reason.
  • The Act provides for a process for tenants to challenge eviction orders.
  • The Act also provides for a process for landlords to challenge rent control orders.

The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 is a significant piece of legislation that protects the rights of tenants in the state of Assam. The Act provides a number of safeguards for tenants, including rent control, protection from eviction, and a process for challenging eviction orders.

Here are some of the key differences between the Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 and the Assam Urban Areas Rent Control Act, 1972:

  • The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 applies to all tenancies in Assam, while the Assam Urban Areas Rent Control Act, 1972 only applied to tenancies in urban areas.
  • The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 does not have any rent capping provisions. It was one of the key differences between the old Assam Urban Areas Rent Control Act, 1972 and the new Act. The old Act had a rent capping mechanism, which meant that the rent of a premises could not be increased beyond a certain limit. This was done to protect the interests of tenants, who would otherwise be at the mercy of landlords who could charge whatever they wanted.
  • The Assam Urban Areas Rent Control Act, 1972 did not have any provisions for tenants to challenge eviction orders. This meant that if a landlord served a tenant with an eviction notice, the tenant had no way to challenge it. The only way to avoid eviction was to comply with the notice and vacate the premises.

The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021 is a comprehensive piece of legislation that provides much-needed protection for tenants in the state of Assam. The Act is a welcome development and it is expected to have a positive impact on the lives of tenants in Assam.

Stamp Duty and Registration in Assam

Mostly people is Assam pay the stamp duty amount of Rs. 100 for rent agreements. According to The Assam Tenancy Act, 2021, here is how the stamp duty is actually calculated:

  • Stamp Duty for Agreements with tenure of less than or equal to 12 months is 2% of the total annual rent
    • For example, if the rent total annual rent is Rs. 1,44,000 then for third year is Rs. 25,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 3,00,000/ year, and
  • Stamp duty for Agreements with tenure more than 12 months is 2% of the total average of annual rent
    • For example if the rent for first year is Rs. 20,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 2,40,000/ year, and for second year is Rs. 22,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 2,64,000/ year, and for third year is Rs. 25,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 3,00,000/ year, and for forth year is Rs. 29,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 3,48,000/ year, and for fifth year is Rs. 35,000/ month that comes out to Rs. 4,20,000/ year, then the stamp duty payable will be 2% of (240000+264000+300000+348000+420000)/5= 3,14,400 i.e. Rs. 6288

Regarding registration, it is not mandatory for rent agreements with a duration of less than 11 months in Assam. However, if you plan to create an agreement for more than 11 months, registration becomes mandatory.

The registration charges for rent agreements in Assam can be paid at any sub-registrar’s office in Assam. The rent agreement must be executed in the presence of a witness, who must also sign the rent agreement.
