    Panchsheel builder for their project Panchsheel Greens in Noida extn, they are charging 20000 per KVA for meter connection. That makes 1,15,000 for 5KVA connection including 15% tax.

    Is it reasonable ? and what can be done if not ?

      Was 20k per KVA mentioned as part of BBA. If yes, nothing can be done. If no, it can be contested.

    A very silly question but is the stamp duty and registry charge one and the same thing ? I sure hope so

      Thanks for writing to us Himanshu. This is a frequently asked question by a first time buyer so nothing silly really.
      Stamp duty and registry charges are different. Registering a property requires paying tax to the concerned government in form of stamp duty.
      Registry charges specifically range from 10 to 15 k while stamp duty is a substantial amount which runs in lacs.
