Only one deed is sufficient. Reconstitution of Partnership deed shall be executed between the continuing partners (2) and outgoing partner. One stamp duty is sufficient but whichever is higher i.e. Rs.5000/-. for correct drafting, consult a local CA.

The rate of the stamp duty differs from State to State. Two separate deeds are required.

Draft a Reconstituted Deed of Partnership covering both points and stamp paper value will be equal to the value used for new Partnership deed as pr your state schedule.
T. Kalaiselvan, Advocate (Expert) 28 December 2019
You can draft a deed containing both the subjects i.e., retirement of one of the partners and reconstitution of the partnership firm due to an outgoing partner.
The partnership is an agreement between two or more persons for sharing the profits of a business carried on by all or any one of them acting for all. Any change in the existing agreement is known as reconstitution of the partnership firm
Stamp paper value is Rs. 5,000/- ( Rupees five thousand only) for the Reconstitution deed.
