1. Background

In India, market prices routinely exceed government-set circle rates. When calculating capital gains and/or registering a property, the circle rates for the property are substituted for the purchase price or used as the fair market value (FMV) in the absence of an actual price.

Circle rates are estimated prices for the sale or transfer of a commercial property, apartment, flat, newly-built residence, or builder floor, agriculture and non-agriculture, SEZ. Local and state government ministries of revenue determine the circle rates from time-to-time. Mostly the departments maintain only latest circle rates rather historical rates online.

As there are numerous government portals in India, and as usual Google search always displays commercial content before government portals, it can be difficult to determine where to go. Team compiled a catalog of state-by-state portals where circle rates can be found. I hope it's helpful.
