The Karnataka state government may make electronic stamping (e-stamping) compulsory, getting rid of physical franking of reports out and out. The two systems are modes through which the state government gathers stamp duty for different exchanges. Franking is done at the sub-recorder's office yet e-stamping, which was dispatched in 2008, is a lot less difficult process. The documentation is put away in an advanced structure in a focal information bank for check purposes.

Fundamentally, the area should have good social infrastructure, availability of adequate public transport and sufficient economic activity to sustain development and growth. These parameters apply equally to investment in NA-certified land approved for residential development and flats in a residential project. In order to mitigate most of the investment risk, one should restrict residential property investment to Tier 1 and select Tier 2 cities. It is also most prudent to invest in properties where the price tag falls between Rs 2,500-5,000/sq.ft., since such a price tag provides downside protection against any capital value erosion.
