In Mumbai, the stamp duty for making a Gift Deed from parents to children depends on the market value of the property or asset being gifted, as determined by the Ready Reckoner rates issued by the Government of Maharashtra. The stamp duty and registration charges for a Gift Deed are governed by the Maharashtra Stamp Act, 1958.

As per the current rates, the stamp duty for making a Gift Deed from parents to children in Mumbai is as follows:

  1. If the market value of the property or asset being gifted is up to Rs. 30 lakhs, the stamp duty is 1% of the market value.

  2. If the market value of the property or asset being gifted is between Rs. 30 lakhs and Rs. 75 lakhs, the stamp duty is Rs. 30,000 plus 2% of the market value exceeding Rs. 30 lakhs.

  3. If the market value of the property or asset being gifted is above Rs. 75 lakhs, the stamp duty is Rs. 1.75 lakhs plus 3% of the market value exceeding Rs. 75 lakhs.

In addition to the stamp duty, registration charges of 1% of the market value of the property or asset being gifted, subject to a maximum of Rs. 30,000, are also applicable. It is important to note that these rates are subject to change, and it is advisable to check the current rates at the time of making a Gift Deed.

Dear Querist, the decision to hike to stamp duty charges was revoked later. So at present there are five categories for Rs 200/- stamp duty, Husband to wife and vice versa, Parents to children, and Grand parents to grand son, and to deceased son's daughter in law. For all other blood relations you will have to pay stamp duty of 3% on Gift Deed in Mumbai, and rest of Maharashtra there is 1% added duty depending upon municipal corporation.
