Kochi: The Kerala Cabinet has decided to hike the fair value of lanby 50 per cent across the state, part of measures aimed at increasing the state’s revenue.

The state government was targeting an additional of Rs 500 crore by the way of stamp duties accrued through this measure. The minimum price for the registration of land is the fair value fixed by the government.

The Cabinet approved the suggestions submitted by a sub-committee in this regard, said chief minister Oommen Chandy.

Denying them, Chandy said the hike will be effective from today.
