In like manner, on the off chance that the cost expressed in the understanding is lower than the stamp obligation valuation of the property, the stamp obligation valuation of the property, which is an intermediary for the honest assessment, is taken as the deal thought, rather than the worth expressed in the arrangement.

Prepared reckoner or circle rates:
