Understanding GST for Home Buyers in India (2024): Impact & Implications

Purchasing a home marks a significant milestone in many people's lives. However, the journey to homeownership is accompanied by various financial considerations, one of the key aspects being the Goods and Services Tax (GST). The impact of GST on flat purchases has brought about notable changes for home buyers, altering the overall cost of owning a home and influencing decision-making processes.

Understanding the role of GST in real estate is indispensable for both first-time buyers and seasoned investors. In this blog post, we will explore the nuances of GST concerning new flat purchases and its implications for home buyers.


GST on Property in India

Introduced in 2017, GST is a comprehensive tax imposed on every value addition. In the real estate sector, GST directly affects the cost and pricing of properties, including flats. In India, GST on property is levied on the sale of under-construction properties or those still in the development phase. This tax does not apply to ready-to-move-in flats or resale properties, as GST has already been paid during the construction phase of completed projects.

The current GST rate for under-construction properties, including affordable housing, is comparatively lower than the previous tax regime, which encompassed various taxes such as VAT and Service Tax. This not only simplifies the process and enhances transparency but also lessens the tax burden on home buyers.

GST Rates: 2024  

The GST rate on flat purchase varies depending on the type of property being acquired.


GST rate on flat purchase - under construction (affordable housing): 1% without Input Tax Credit (ITC)


GST rate on flat purchase - under construction (non-affordable housing): 5% without Input Tax Credit (ITC)


GST on ready-to-move flats: Nil


Impact of GST on Home Buyers

The imposition of GST on flat purchases has several implications for home buyers:


Price Transparency: GST has rationalized the tax structure, offering greater transparency. Buyers now have a clearer understanding of the taxes they are paying, as multiple indirect taxes formerly applicable have been amalgamated under GST.


Increased Affordability in Some Segments: The reduced GST rate of 1% without ITC for affordable housing has made such properties more accessible to buyers. This is particularly advantageous for middle-income groups and first-time home buyers.


Effects on Non-Affordable Housing: While the 5% GST rate for non-affordable housing is higher than that for affordable housing, many still consider it reasonable. However, the elimination of ITC implies that developers cannot claim tax credits on construction costs, potentially leading to higher overall project expenses and subsequently, increased prices for buyers.

Clarity in Taxation: The standardized GST rate nationwide has brought about more clarity in tax terms compared to the previous system where VAT and service tax rates varied from state to state.


Impact on Under-Construction Properties: GST is only applicable to under-construction properties. Hence, buyers opting for ready-to-move-in properties can bypass paying GST, resulting in significant savings.


Comprehending GST Implications on Flat Maintenance Fees

Apart from the initial purchase, buyers might also encounter GST on maintenance charges for their flats. 

If the total maintenance charges exceed INR 7,500 per member per month and the society’s annual turnover is INR 20 lakhs or more, GST at a rate of 18% applies. Maintenance charges can encompass various components such as property tax, water bills, and electricity charges for common areas. Societies liable to pay GST can claim ITC on GST paid on goods and services for maintenance, reducing the overall maintenance costs for members.

I want to cancel my flat purchase. Who will bear the GST burden?
As per GST laws, if a buyer cancels a flat booking before possession, the GST paid on the advance amount can be refunded. Since GST is paid on the sale transaction, which remains incomplete until property possession, developers are responsible for refunding the GST amount to buyers. The builders can then claim a refund from the government. 

However, builders may deduct cancellation charges before refunding the booking amount and GST, the specifics of which are determined by the builder's policy and agreement terms. 

Buyers should ensure they have all the necessary documentation for processing the GST refund.
