commercial spaces across the province.
Lahore: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Elahi on
Thursday (September 15) signed the bill fixing the property transfer rate at 1%
of the total value of the property, news sources reported. The sole reason behind
lowering transfer rates is to encourage the real estate industry and expand
real estate activities across the province, producing more employment.
This decision is made to bring relief to the masses in
property-related concerns and promote the housing sector.
This tax was determined on a rolling basis with the government
charging active taxpayers up to 1% and non-tax filers 2%.
