The decision to increase the DLC rate was taken in a meeting at district collector office on Friday.

MLA Ramlal Sharma said that the DLC rates should be decreased. Many other MLAs including Rafeeq Khan, Laxman Meena, Indraj Gurjar and Ved Prakash Solanki said that the DCL rates have been increased for colonies where basic facilities such as sewer and roads are yet to be developed.  

The registry fee is determined on the basis of the land’s DLC rate instead of the market rate. So registry will get costlier with this increase.
