What's Guideline Value?
Guideline Value is the Value of a Property fixed by the Government. Property buyers can not register below the Guideline Value. But, there is no bar for registering the property at Market Value which may be above the Guideline Value. The primary purpose of fixing the Guideline Value is to prevent evasion of Stamp Duty.
