Most leases are signed for 11 months so they can avoid stamp duty and other fees. Under the Registration Act of 1908, registration of a lease is mandatory if the tenancy period is more than 12 months. If an agreement is registered, stamp duty and registration tax must be paid. For example, in Delhi, for a lease of up to five years, stamp paper costs 2% of the total annual rent of one year. Add a flat fee of Rs100 if a security deposit is part of the agreement. For a lease of more than 5 years but less than 10 years, it represents 3% of the value of the average annual rent for a year. For 10 years and more, but less than 20 years, it is 6% of the value of the average annual rent of a year. The stamp paper may be in the name of the tenant or landlord.
In addition, a flat-rate registration fee of EUR 1,100 million must be paid by the draft application (DD).
