With GST rate cut, you have another reason to buy a home

Demand for residential properties is expected to receive a major boost following the government’s decision to cut the goods & services tax (GST) rates for under construction projects to 5% from effective rate of 12%. In a major push to stated objective of ‘Housing For All by 2022’, the government has reduced GST to marginal 1% for affordable housing while revising the definition of such homes.

Prior to this, under-construction residential properties attracted rate of 18% and effective rate of 12% after factoring one-third abatement for the value of land. The effective GST rate for affordable housing was 8%. Ready properties that have received occupancy certificate (OC) do not attract GST.
