1.General stamp paper is required[Not court fee stamp].

2. The value of stamp depends on the provisions made in the local Stamp Act.

3. Normally signatures of witnesses are not mandatory on affidavits. But some one should identify the affiant before the Notary, if it is to be sworn in before him.

4. You have to approach the Notary. He will register it. In Maharashtra, a photograph of the affiant is required to be given to the Notary.

Thanks a lot sir. I will ask some more details on it.

I am based in Bangalore and I want to execute the affidavit all by myself. I have no exp in this area.

I need to claim that i don't own any ration card anywhere else in india. I will give it a try to draft it. Someone who is familiar with stamp duty or stamp paper reqd in this case in Bangalore...please help me in this.

Please add or edit the draft.

The short draft is fine enough. But i dont know the amount of stamp that is required for the affidavit in your state.

Adv. Santosh Mahanor (Lawyer)     11 February 2009

Dear Friend,

1. You have to use Non Judicial Stamp Paper,

2. Presently Stamp value for Affidavit is Rs .100.00

3. There is no requirment of witness

4. Just take one signature of advocate and present it before Notery .

 Well, I did some research and get to know this much information which will serve my purpose hopefully. I am posting this info for the other who will read this in future.

We need just 20/- non-judicial stamp paper for applying for Ration card in bangalore.

the non-judicial stamp paper can be obtained from State Bank of Mysore branch anywhere. and the timing is between 10:30 - 2:30

so the next step will be...type the content on the stamp paper, get the sign of Notary...( not a big deal...go to any civil bangalore ..Mayo Hall near MG Road will serve the purpose ) and thts all...

Thanks all for all the responses.

  To be more on Notary: if you happen to stay near Jayanagar..then find the Adiga's restaurant and take right from thr...u will find lots of sign board of Notary. Official charges per sign for Affidavit is 15/-. Ofcourse they will ask more..but there are lots of u can negotiate if u have time.

For any other place...just search here to get a Notary nearby ur place of stay :

Can someone pl tell me what is Stamp paper value reqd for Affidavit for Ration card? I spoke to SHCIL who issues e-stamp paper & they said they will issue of value Rs one wards. However I am unable to find sta mp paper value reqd for above affidavit.

I found that for minor passport, affidavit is reqd on rs 20 stamp paper. So same rule applies for Ration card affidavit or will it be different

Pl advise

 OK. I got my ration card based on Affidavit draft posted here.

As I am in Mumbai, I got a stamp paper of rs 100. On that I typed the content posted above.

Then I took it to Notary. I signed the affidavit in front of Notary. No witness is reqd if u carry a photo identity prrof like votor Id/Passport/Drvg Lic/Office ID etc.. Notary fee was Rs 100.

Then I went to Ration office along with latest Electricity bill, One photo & a letter from society stating that I am staying at the flat since date & myfamily is consisting of wife & children with their name & age.

On the basis of above, I got ration card application form (from Maha gv website), filled it & subkmitted. Verification ws done within a week & I got my ration card in 10 days.

application form for new ration card

RAKESH KUMAR JAIN (computer professional)     06 February 2012

Is it compulsory to write in affidavit that I have no ration card in India? While preparing affidavit the typist said that writing "I have no ration card in Karnataka" is enough for applying for ration card in Karnataka/Bangalore. Kindly suggest.
