Registration fee and Applicable Penalty :
The registration fee is a fee for the service provided by the sub-registrar’s office, of recording and storing the document for years together and in the proper condition. If one does not pay registration fees, he will not be able to register the document and will be deprived of these services but there is as such no penalty for non-payment as is the case of stamp duty. So whenever a person goes for registration he is charged the same registration fees as is chargeable on his document on the date of registration and no interest etc. is charged. However one must keep in mind that when one goes for registration after four months and before eight months of execution of document he is charged a penalty which could be up to 10 times of registration fees. This is the penalty for delay in presenting the document before the registrar and is not a penalty for non-payment. Normally this penalty is charged at the rate of 2.5 times of the registration fees per month for delay beyond the permissible 4 months.
The Registration fees is one per cent of the market value or Rs.30,000, whichever is less in case of documents pertaining to sale or conveyance. This is applicable from 01-04-2003 to date.
