Validity of a stamp paper


Can we execute a back dated rent agreement deed, sale deed or sale agreement deed on a current dated stamp paper. Let us say rent agreement executed on 01/08/2011 for a back date like 01/07/2011. ?

No u cannot..stamp paper bears a date and purpose for which it is issued...it can b used for prospective purposes otherwise its looks like a afterthought....

Agreement will be and should be executed on current date. However, the commencement of rent/leave ance license can be from earlier date, bringing the agreement into retrospective effect..  In your query

the retrospective effect would be one month prior and hence there should not be issues.

Sir , how many days the commencement date can be from the date of execution of Leave and licence agreement?? I have made the agreement with my Landlord on 19/06/2012 & the commencement date is 01/02/2012. Can it be valid....  Date on Non Judicial Stamp Paper is 18.06.2012.

This will be in order, However, if you are going for registration (in Maharasthra, registration is compulsory), check the time limit as per the local procedure. If both agrees not to go for registration this is fine.

1.  An  Agreement can be of   "ANY"  date (irrespective of it being of a restrospective date).   Such agreement can be  "freshly"   stamped at current date, after paying the relevant applicable penalty.


2.  An agreement necessarily is between atleast two parties and both the parties should mutually consent to payment of stamp-duty + penalty as on date.


NOTE:  An agreement which is not stamp-duty paid or registered is still valid enough under the Contract Act.
