can you give me an idea with exact provisions of law ?

Section 2(2 3) of the Indian Stamp Act 1899 makes it mandatory for affixing of stamp on any receipt as defined therein above Rs 5000. Please check with the latest amendments.

It is the Indian Stamp Act which preceribes the stamp duty. One rupee stamp is enough. you can proceed with it. You can refer to Art.49 Schedule I of the Indian Stamp Act,1889.

The provision quoted by Mr.Arunagiri does not apply to promissory notes. It applies only to receipts.
