Stamp paper is used in every printed copy of the contract according to the value described in the Stamp Act 1889, the purpose of the Stamp Act is to protect government revenues and not interfere in business life by invalidating the instruments essential to the fluidity of trade and commerce. If a document has been executed without the required stamp paper, such a document cannot be included in the evidence. It is considered a lag in the document. But it is not because an instrument cannot be admitted as proof that such an instrument is not valid. Stamp duty levied on a document is set on the date of execution of the document, but the customs penalty must be set at the time of its submission for use as evidence. In this respect, two things are important. Under Section 10, any agreement declared with free consent, by the parties in accordance with the contract, against a legal consideration, with a lawful and not expressly annulled purpose, is a contract that is an agent or representative empowered to compel the authorisation organization to enter into a binding agreement. He is also designated as a signing agent or Singing Authority, which has been delegated by the competent authority of the legal authority to fill the organizational positions they designate as agents of the organization for general or specific purposes. The signature of the authorized person essentially holds the agreement, which is called final execution. It should be noted that if a signatory writes the signing date at the time the agreement is signed, it is the execution date. If he signs the contract without consent, both parties, with their mutual consent, enter the execution date in the contract, but the execution date is the one that followed the issuance of the stamp document. A simple error can cause conflict in the document. In order to manage contracts, a package tracking number or identification number for reference and verification purposes should be posted on the document.
According to the Business Standard newspaper, India`s finance ministry plans to amend a centuries-old Indian stamp law, in which stamp papers will only be valid for one year. The objective of such a change is to put an end to the misuse of stamp paper by preventing people from purchasing backdated papers in order to place their rights on the property in the future, even though no agreement was reached at that time. In addition, electronic stamp duty payment is proposed under the new law to verify the same issue. As has already been said, agreements that are placed on old stamp paper are valid. In Thiruvengada Pillai vs. Navaneethammal – Anr. (see here), it was decided by the Honourable Supreme Court that the Indian Stamp Act does not impose an expiration date for the use of stamp paper.
