And special fast track courts must be set up to clear all legal land disputes in a short period of time. Some states like Maharashtra. Stamp Duty & Registration The cost of transferring land titles must be reduced from rates of 10% stamp duties to reasonable levels of 3 to 5%. Development and Planning In India development and planning concerned with real estate sector is not up to the mark.

The high duties have also encouraged unaccounted money being used in most real estate transactions in India. The home loans were easily available and RBI was following very liberal policies regarding the interest rates. similar to prevailing rates in developed countries. The ownership is unclear. Inflation rate is touching the heights as shown by the figure given below: . Present Scenario in India Up to the end of 2007 real estate sector in India was growing at a very high rate. This will allow proper zoning within cities and towns. The registration procedure should also be made transparent and simple so that corruption can be minimized. Rental Laws Obsolete tenancy and rental control laws keep a large part of the urban properties off the market. which is collateral for the housing loan. Standards & Permissions There are several building guidelines and standards in various cities and states.
