According to the registration documents of the flat, Bachchan had purchased it on December 31, 2020 and registered the documents on April 13 this year.

The Maharashtra government had last year announced a discount of three per cent on stamp duty for those who have paid the duty before December 31, 2020 and two per cent discount for those who paid stamp duty till March 2021. A time frame of four months was also given by the government to register the sale agreement from the date of paying the stamp duty.
“Usually the stamp duty is five per cent of the total amount of the flat and those who bought the flat before December 31, 2020 saved three per cent stamp duty, while those who paid stamp duty before March 31 this year saved two per cent of duty,” said a real estate expert.
“Due to the discount offered by the state government, a alot of big ticket deals had taken place between September 2020 and March 2021,” he added.
A detailed mail sent to the public relationship manager of the actor yielded no response.
