Anyway let the seller Pay stampduty and registration fee if you both, buyer AND SELLER AGREE. LATER ON THE BUYER WOULD REIMBURSE YOU./THE SELLER.

As per the Statute, the Stamp Duty receipt can be in the name of the Buyer or the Seller. Usually, the Buyer and Seller can agree on who shall pay the Stamp Duty, and it is mentioned in the Agreement to Sell. Conventionally, the Buyer pays the stamp duty, but that is not essential as the Seller can also pay in his name. I am not sure what is the confusion here - if the Buyer is ready to compensate you, then you can pay in your name. If it is a case of income tax issues, then you can show the entire sale consideration in your return and then deduct the stamp duty as the expenses related to the sale of the property.

Decide amongst yourself and narrate in agreement.
Take care that narration is inserted in sale deed.
