If you are letting it out for residential purpose then it is totally exempted from GST irrespective of your Turnover goes above Rs. 20 Lakhs or not and registration due to that is not required. But if you are letting it out for commercial purposes then you are required to get it registered if the turnover from such income falls above Rs.20 Lakhs.
