With a conducive atmosphere on offer, Chandigarh is an encouraging base for most IT firms to set up an IT centre or office in its RajivGandhiInformationTechnologyPark. These projects are coming in the suburban areas of Chandigarh due to land exhaustion in the city and a very limited option with exorbitant prices. The various projects offer options of plots, villas and flats to the buyers to choose from. In Chandigarh many kothis are getting converted in to apartments that have further increased the price of land in the city. Keeping all these factors in mind, it is the best time to invest in Chandigarh with several projects offering various schemes and festive discounts. And the state government also added more fuel in the competition by cutting 1% in stamp duty on sale deeds of immovable property in the city. It is now 5 per cent. Stamp duty is described as general revenue that a person pays on the registered value of the property. It has to be paid in case of both the commercial and residential property.
