Updated on :

Real estate developers across the nation are worried that if the industry falls under the 18% GST tax bracket and the stamp duty is not subsumed, then the overall cost of properties could rise by a discernible margin. According to the amended bill passed in Rajya Sabha earlier this month, land leasing, purchase of under-construction properties and renting of commercial properties will be taxable events under GST.
