The government proposes 0.1 per cent on the market value of the or one per cent of the premium plus average annual rent paid, whichever is higher, for up to 36 months. For commercial, the duty for 60 months would be 0.4 per cent.

The Budget session of the state legislature would begin on Thursday and finance minister Ajit Pawar, who had presented a revenue-surplus budget of Rs 58 crore for 2011-12, would make Budget proposals for 2012-13 on March 26.

And, 0.2 per cent of the market value of or two per cent of the premium, plus average annual rent paid, whichever is higher, for 36 to 60 months. The government hopes to mobilise at least Rs 1,000 crore annually due to the proposed revision.

Of total tax collection, nearly 60 per cent comes from valuer added tax and 20 per cent from stamp duty. The balance 20 per cent is mobilised from state excise tax, electricity duty and vehicle tax.

A state government official, who did not want to be identified, told Business Standard: “The proposal will be soon discussed at the cabinet. If a foreign bank wants to close a deal for 100,000 sq ft in the plush Bandra Kurla Complex, at the present market values it comes to Rs 200 crore. By the revised proposal the foreign bank will now have to pay Rs 80 lakh. Similarly, if any coffee chain or pizza chain or mall wants to have a leave and licence agreement up to 60 months in Worli, Bandra, Khar, Linking Road or Santa Cruz, they will have to pay at 0.4 per cent of the market value of the commercial premises.”
