Integrated Grievance Redressal System or IGRS Telangana is an online web portal created and managed by the Telangana government.
The online system was introduced to facilitate many services like property registration, stamp duty and alike, which proved to be time consuming and difficult via the earlier offline modes.
As someone who makes a full time living making money online, I’m also glad that most state governments in India are now transitioning more towards online modes of goverance.
Through this site, these services became much more transparent to both citizens and government and helped in a decrease of different fraudulent activities.
The site also allows you to address grievances while communicating with any government facilities or services.
This has helped to be save time and transportation, if you have a computer and a good internet connection at home. Moreover, the system supports good governance of the state.
IGRS also facilitates you to search market value, Encumbrance Certificate (EC), e-Stamp services, and many more. You can also get marriage and property registrations.

Stamp Duty and Property Registration Charges
Stamp Duty is collected by the respective state government of the place where the property is located during the transfer of assets or property from one person to other.
It is managed and governed by the state governments under the Indian Stamp Act 1899 and hence, the charges vary from one state to another.
In Telangana, the stamp duty includes stamp duty, registration charge/fee plus transfer duty and is hence calculated as per IGRS Telangana market value of the property.
When you pay the stamp duty for the property, you get the official and legal document which transfers the ownership of the property to your name.
It is mandatory to pay stamp duty to government when registering the sale or transfer of property, and at the time of recording the transfer.
You can pay through the online portal of Telangana Registration, which generates a legal document stating you are the owner of the property and is accepted as evidence in case of property disputes.
In Telangana, the stamp duty is fixed as 0.5% of the property value. There cannot be any fixed rate for a property like land and there are times when it gets sold for less than its minimum value.
Hence, property value is considered as the higher value of Actual Transaction Value or Ready Reckoner Rate. The minimum value of a property fixed by the government is known as Ready Reckoner Rate.
However, the charges can be different depending upon different factors associated with the property. In the state, there are different sectors like Corporations and Municipalities, sale agreement and GPA, sale agreement with possession.
The percentage differs according to the location or type of the property. Other factors are amenities in the property, age of the property, gender of the buyer and age of the buyer.
For houses or such buildings with extravagant amenities and facilities, there can be changes in the stamp duty or registration charges. These properties are charged higher than those with few facilities.
An older property has lesser stamp duty value than a newer property. Similarly the gender of a person can also affect these charges.
A male person is charged 2% extra as stamp duty than a Female person, in order to attract more women buyers and investors in assets and buildings.
Senior citizens also have concessions while buying a property according to the laws if different states.
