What are the current circle rates in Lucknow?

2 min read

The District Magistrate’s office issues the circle rate in Lucknow for different properties in several regions or areas. Presently, the city’s circle rate is the same since the last update in 2017. The rates form an essential factor in the property valuation calculation when it comes to transactions such as sale, purchase, or mortgage.

As the circle rates in Lucknow are considered during property valuation, it is important to know all you can about them. This is especially the case if you’re looking to borrow a loan against property, as the valuation dictates the quantum of funding you can avail.

What is circle rate?

Circle rate is the minimum value that the government notifies for property valuation in a given area. Several transactions related to the property are initiated based on the applicable rate. What’s more, stamp duty is calculated and paid either the assessed value or declared transaction value, whichever is higher. As such, you must be informed about the rates across the different areas.

What does the circle rate in Lucknow depend upon?

The circle rate in Lucknow depends on the factors listed below.

  • The area where the property is located
  • Available amenities
  • Age of the property
  • Type of property, depending on whether it is a flat, an independent house, or a plot
  • Occupancy, i.e., either residential or commercial

The value of commercial properties is higher than residential ones. During property valuation, circle rates significantly affect the assessed value. However, when availing of a property loan, it is preferable to go for a residential property mortgage. This is because lenders consider residential properties as a more viable option.
