The case is yet to commence Evidence. The court impounded the sale agreement and Affidavit and ordered to pay stamp duty and penalty. It is not known if the court send the documents to dist commissioner to collect the same.
The Plaintiff now is saying that he has paid the stamp duty and penalty after the court order.
The plaintiff has not produced the proof to the defendant. How can the defendant cross check that the Plaintiff has really paid if he has paid.
Plaintiff has to produce the documents with respect to payment of stamp duty and registration charges on record in order to support his contention. In absence to any document he cannot prove that he has paid stamp duty.

Usually, for validation of documents, the impounding officer will send them to the District Registrar concerned who is also a Collector under Indian Stamp Act, Sec.33,38(2) and 40. Hence you can obtain the information from the District Registrar concerned.
