Boman Irani, incoming president of CREDAI-MCHI, thanked the government for timely actions and interventions for the real estate sector, amid trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
    Irani said the stamp duty collections of the government also rose 81 percent year-on-year in 2021, almost touching the 2019 level. Colliers India CEO Ramesh Nair said the year 2021 has definitely been a good year for homebuyers. "The numbers show how sops at the right time can boost demand across the segments," he added.
    Apart from stamp duty reduction, Nair said the home loan rates, stable housing prices, pent-up demand and discounts offered by builders contributed to rising registration numbers.
    Within the MMR property market, the registration of homes in Thane increased to 1,02,054 units during last year from 69,434 units in 2020 and 94,154 units in 2019.
    Palghar saw the registration of 28,678 units last year as against 20,357 units and 26,280 units in the previous two years, respectively. Homes registration in Raigad rose to 34,192 units in 2021 from 22,775 units in the previous year and 32,725 units in 2019.

    The state government in September 2020 reduced stamp duty charges from 5 percent to 2 percent for all residential transactions for September- December 2020 and to 3 percent during January-March 2021. The cut in stamp duty gave a fillip to affordable and mid-segment (less than Rs 1 crore). Property registrations in these segments rose 22 percent in 2021, over 2019.
