NO INCREASE IN FEE FOR THE PURCHASE OF RELATIVES PROPERTIES
TVM, Today the Cabinet will meet to find out the solutions to reduce expenses and increase income. The first step towards this is to increase the fair value of the land. But no increase in purchase of relative’s property. Government fees and royalties should increase.
A decrease of income from registration department by 233 crores in 4 months time is the main reason for this increase.

Family member’s partition fees also going to increase.
SALES TAX ON PROPERTY
In Kerala June 1st onwards property buyers should pay 1% tax on the total amount of the land purchased. This is named as TDS. Agricultural land is exempted from TDS.
This is applicable for all sections of people, but the amount of the property, if less than 50 lakhs, TDS is not applicable. This is according to the act 194 A. No change in the ACT of 195, that says Indians who are not permanently staying in India should pay TDS on the property purchased.
On June 1st onwards peoples purchasing property above 50 lakhs should take TAN account number. Then they should pay 1 % TDS to the government and the balance only should go to the land lord. They should give certificate of the TDS paid and they must submit TDS return also.
According to the TDS of the property value, no exceptions are allowed. As per the act of 197, people who are not paying income tax can apply for the exceptions of tax.
Till now tax should be decided by the value of the stamp paper, when selling property. But property dealers were exempted from this act. According to the budget of this year, property dealers also should give right value of the land they are selling and if not done so they should pay tax on the difference of the value of the land. This is according to the new act 43 CA.

Kochi Smartcity A fresh lease agreement Singed today 25/02/2011
Kochi: A fresh lease agreement for the much delayed Rs 1700 crore Kochi Smartcity, an IT infrastructure project being jointly promoted by Kerala Government and Dubai based Tecom Investments group, which envisages direct employment to about 90,000 persons, was signed here Wednesday.
The agreement for the entire 246 acres of the project land was signed between Tecom Investments group CEO Abdullatif AlMulla and state IT Secretary, K Suresh Kumar in the presence of Kerala fisheries minister and Kochi Smartcity chairman, S Sharma. Later talking to reporters Sharma said all measures have been completed to start the project on a war footing. Construction will begin as soon as the SEZ notification is issued by the central government. The SEZ notification for about 131 acres is expected within two to three weeks, he said.Abdullatif AlMulla said the director board meeting was 'fruitful' and 'positive' and the board was very much supportive of the project. Once the SEZ notification comes through, the work would start immediately, he said. A preliminary masterplan was presented before the board today by Tecom and a detailed master plan would be presented at the next director board meeting, he said. The agreement was registered later. Smart City CEO Fareed Abdulrahman, who had been representing the company, was not present. AlMullah had earlier this month said in Dubai that their immediate priority was to sign the lease agreement to secure the designated land for the project. 'We are quite optimistic that we will be able to complete this project as planned and are confident of fulfilling all the time bound contractual obligations mentioned in the Framework Agreement', he had stated.
The foundation stone for the project was laid in May 2007. The project was in a limbo after that following differences over the issue over 12 per cent free hold. Government was prepared to give the free hold land only inside the SEZ, which was not agreeable to Tecom. However, the issue was settled last month at the talks between Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan and and Ahmed Homaid al Tajir, member of the Supreme Committee for Dubai World Group and Public Holding Group at thiruvananthapuram.As per the agreement, on completion of the master plan, 12 per cent of the total land would be converted from leasehold to freehold rights within the Special Economic Zone. The Government would also exempt the land from registration fee and stamp duty. The agreement was later approved by the state cabinet, paving the way for the work on the project to start without further delay.
