BMC nod for 50% premium cut to realty firms

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has cleared a proposal for granting a 50% discount in premium payments to real estate firms for one year.

In January this year, the Maharashtra state government had cleared the proposal in the legislative assembly, directing the municipal bodies of the state to take a call on the implementation.

The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government had presented a financial incentive package for the real estate sector last month. As per the package, the 50% concessional rate for premium would be valid till 31 December 2021, for all new construction projects, regardless of size and type, sanctioned in the state on or before the deadline. The ongoing projects may also avail the benefit of premium instalments to be paid by December 31.

Real estate developers pay premiums for availing additional buildable area or floor space index (FSI) for residential and commercial projects.

According to the approved proposals, developers availing the special scheme will have to compulsorily bear stamp duty and registration fees for homes sold during the years in the beneficiary projects.

Development plans fees and premiums are two major sources of revenue for the cash strapped BMC. Earlier, BMC had announced a target of Rs 2,000 crore from development plan fees and premiums for this financial year.

The 10 day Budget session of Maharashtra will begin today. The session will have eight working days and the budget will be tabled on March 8. Bills pertaining to sectors such as revenue, higher education and home are likely to be taken up.
