What is Guidance Value?
The property/asset guidance value is a non-negotiable price per sq. ft. for properties in a particular locality defined by the Government. A well-developed and commercial locality will have a higher guidance value. This value is calculated based on the population, infrastructural and real estate development and other defining aspects of the locality such as Public Transport, Industrial establishments, technology centers, etc and is liable to appreciate or depreciate.
Once in 3-4 years, the respective state Government will raise the guidance value for increasing the revenue. The price per sq. ft. of a locality cannot be less than the one quoted by the Government.
