To Mr. Makkad or Mr. Rao,
My parents are no more. I am their only son and I have a sister. For the flat owned by my father which is still in his name, why would I need to pay a stamp duty at this date for the succession certificate?
What is the logic in paying a stamp dutty like 3% - 7% of the current value when the property's legal heirs after parents are their children. I am not buying the flat to pay a stamp duty now!!
How is this justified?
