  • There are no tax benefits. The term ‘transfer’ includes relinquishment, not gift. Hence, when you are relinquishing property for monetary consideration, it will result in capital gains for the transferor.

  • If the consideration is less than the stamp duty value of the property, the difference between the stamp duty and the consideration will be taxed in the hands of the buyer.

  • If you relinquish it without any consideration, the stamp duty value of the property will be its sales price.
