Franking involves stamping. Oxford meening of Franking is stamp a mark to indicate that amount has been paid.
I am trying to umnderstand from your quiry , If I am not wrong you want to know the difference between Franking and Printed Stamp Papers. If it is true, NJS ( Non Judicial Stamp ) Paper can be purchased from the Stamp Vendor and later on you can type on it. Because of Telgi effect Govt brought some changes. You first prepare a document on paper and before signing parties on it, take it to nominated Branch of a Bank pay the stamp duty there and then the bank will put stamp on your document indicating the value of the stamp duty. That is called franking.

In so far I know previously the NJSP were printed in Government press and were available with the Stamp Vendors who used to take the same from Treasury but now the Government has authorized the banks and post offices who are selling them after franking the documents.

The purpose of Franking & stamping is the same. Franking is prepaid , Government authorize some of the bank's for franking, & u can use franking paper same way as u use in case of stamping.

The both franking & stamping are comes under the purview of the state govt. Franking is just one more additional ways through which the person can ease his by authenticating the documents by paying requisite fees and that too by avoiding long standing ques before stamp vendor/Govt. stamping office. It is just one mode of the mode govt. has facilitated for ease of the public.
