Stamp duty on consortium agreements.

Posted by Anant Luhadia

Dear Sir,

On the advise of RBI the IBA has prepared and suggested draft if working capital consortium agreement for consortium lending. While suggesting this they have not noticed that for the loans which are based on equitable mortgage banks execute deposit of title deed ( article 6 ) and unattested hypothecation ( exempted thru notification since English time ). In the IBA suggested document i.e Working capital consortium agreement contains loan details as well as security details. Because of this it may fall under article 37(b) / mortgage deed. Article 37(b) or mortgage deed without possession attracts at least 10 times higher stamp duty then article 6 meant for deposit of title deed. This query is presently related to Rajasthan but may affect other states in future. Pl help us and suggest how to deal this situation.
