You can write the starting date 24.10.21. It is important to execute the agreement by proper stamp duty and registration charges applicable in your state. In case a dispute arises your will face some problem if an agreement is not executed by paying property stamp duty and registration charges.

You purchased the e-Stamp paper on 25-10-2021 and hence the date of execution of the deed shall be on or after 25-10-2021 as per Stamp Rules. In the recitals of the rental agreement, you can mention as the lease is for a period of xx years/months commencing from 24-10-2021 to xx-xx-xxxx. The stamp duty for the rent agreement (lease deed) depends on the average annual rent and deposit of money if any. Consult in local SRO for stamp duty payable on rent agreement.

The rent / possession can start from 24-10-2021 on e-stamp paper of proper valuation purchased and agreement executed subsequently on 25-10-2021 or later.

Yes, the lease could be shown to be commencing from 24/10/21. Inadequate stamp duty may lead to the document being impounded if required to be produced in evidence before the Court.
