I own a house in Gurgaon. Since I don’t have children, I wish to gift the house to my niece. Is there any stamp duty exemptions for the same?
—Mrinalini As per notification passed by the Haryana government in July 2014, stamp duty payable on transfer of property by an owner to any blood relation (i.e father, mother, children, grandchildren, brother( s), sister( s) and between spouse) has been exempted. Since your niece does not come under the definition of blood relation there is no exemption towards the stamp duty leviable on the gift deed executed by you in her favour.
