The court fee for property disputes in India is calculated based on the value of the property in dispute. The specific fee structure varies depending on the type of property dispute and the state in which the dispute is filed. However, the general principle is that the court fee increases as the value of the property increases.

Here is a general overview of how the court fee is calculated for property disputes in India:

  • Suit for partition: The court fee is calculated at 7% of the value of the property.

  • Suit for declaration of title: The court fee is calculated at 5% of the value of the property.

  • Suit for injunction: The court fee is calculated at 2% of the value of the property.

  • Suit for recovery of possession: The court fee is calculated at 5% of the value of the property.

  • Suit for ejectment: The court fee is calculated at 5% of the value of the property.

In addition to the court fee, there may be other fees payable, such as lawyer's fees, witness fees, and expert witness fees.

Here are some examples of how the court fee is calculated for property disputes of different values:

  • Property valued at ₹100,000: The court fee would be ₹7,000.

  • Property valued at ₹500,000: The court fee would be ₹25,000.

  • Property valued at ₹1,000,000: The court fee would be ₹50,000.
