I am directed to refer to this Department’s Circular No. 398-LP dated 02/02/2017 on the above subject and to state the following for the removal of doubts:

(i) No processing fees for mutation of land shall have to be charged for cases where fees have already been paid before 02/02/2017 in the usual manner at the rate prevalent before coming into force of this Department’s Circular No. 398-LP dated 02/02/2017.

(ii) The rate of processing fees for mutation of land in rural areas will be the rate as prescribed in this Department’s said Circular No. 398-LP dated 02/02/2017 irrespective of the fact it falls within KMDA area or not.

(iii) The rate of processing fees for mutation of land shall have to be charged as per its classification in the RoR as on the date of application, prescribed in this department’s Circular No. 398-LP dated 02/02/2017.
