The economy of the country and the world is sitting due to the Corona transition. Maharashtra is at the top in the entire country in terms of corona infection. Due to the corona, business has collapsed here. The government treasury is constantly being emptied. The government hopes that by reducing the stamp duty, the purchase and purchase of property will increase and the government will get revenue from it.

Representatives of the real estate sector demanded him to reduce stamp duty and registration fees. Balasaheb Thorat had said to consider it seriously.
