“The decision will help reduce disputes over property,” chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda told the reporters. The decision comes in the wake of the observation that the stamp duty leviable on the transfer of immovable property within family and among blood relations parents, siblings, children, grand children, and spouses leads to disputes and litigation among family members.
