The Inspector-General of Registration (IGR) Maharashtra is the nodal state authority for registration and stamps. If you have bought a property in Maharashtra, you must register your sale deed with IGR Maharashtra after paying the stamp duty and registration charges. In other words, the IGR Maharashtra gov ensures that state residents comply with the mandatory provision of registering any fixed/immovable property.
The state department for registration has recently prepared a draft data management policy to transform physical records into electronic and digital data, which would be secured on the cloud. According to the draft document, the new data management policy would not only digitally preserve all records pertaining to individual rights, titles and deeds but would also streamline the current transactions. The new policy would also prevent counterfeiting of documents. The new data policy also caps the amount of information that is available in the public domain.
iSarita stands for Integrated Stamp and Registration Information Technology Application. It is the IGR Maharashtra’s web-based centralised system providing various digital facilities to state residents. You can know about the different property transactions and registrations and use the digital data entry tool to enter the relevant property-related data yourself. Besides allowing IGR Maharashtra to streamline its functions and provide efficient delivery, iSarita 2.0 also helps the department monitor its offices across the state effectively.
The IGR Maharashtra gov evaluates the property on the basis of variables, like urban area, rural area, influence area, and more. Based on these, an Annual Statement of Rates (ASR) is prepared. For valuation of your property or to know the stamp duty payable, you are required to follow the steps given below:
Visit the official website of IGR Maharashtra.
From the menu of ‘Online Services’, select ‘e-ASR.’
You will now be redirected to a map. Click on the area where your property is located.
Now select your village/town and district.
You can now search the Annual Statement of Rates (ASR) by survey number or location.
The Annual Statement of Rates is also known as the IGR Maharashtra ready reckoner rates. This is the minimum price of any property fixed by the government. Any property cannot be sold below the benchmark of ready reckoner rates. These rates differ across localities, districts, cities and villages. The government charges stamp duty and registration duty based on the ready reckoner rates.
If the use of your purchased stamp is cancelled or the stamp is damaged before it could be used, you can claim a refund under the relevant provisions of the state Stamp Act. For getting a stamp duty refund, you need to submit an application. You are also required to provide the required documents, such as the online token, physical affidavit, stamp sale certificate, stamp dealer receipt and so on.
