As a result, there was a sharp drop in revenue from land transactions. Rs 1,470 crore of stamp duty was collected during the year. In other words, stamp duty revenue was reduced by Rs 300 crore in 20-21 compared to 19-20. Thus, the government had reduced the stamp duty by keeping the ready meter rates constant. This had a positive effect. Diarrhea log revived. Improved during 2021-22. A record 2,161 stamp taxes were collected in the district during the year.
Land transactions have increased in Panvel, Uran, Khalapur, Karjat, Alibag, Pen and Roha talukas. The recession in the construction industry has largely subsided. Construction companies are also booming. This has also brought relief to the workers involved in the business.
