My question is that 'we have agreed to purchase one plot of land including construction thereon in the year 1995 from one person, and paid the amount of full and final consideration without paying the necessary stamp duty. However, as the said plot could not got transferred in our name, and at the same time, one third person shown his inteest in purchasing the said plot, we have entered into one MOU with the third person mentioning that he has to enter into an Agreement for Sale/Conveyance with the Original Owner of the plot and we will appear as the confirming party. The said third person paid also paid entire amount to us, however did not come again to enter into any instrument. Now, we have come to know that the said person has made fake documents in respect of the said plot without disclosing our interference and directly purchased the said plot from the original owner, by putting one fake lady as the owner and goit registered and kept the said property as the mortgage with 8 Banks. What would be our stand regarding non-payment of stamp duty on the AGreement with the Original owner in the year 1995. Shall we pay the stamp duty and get the possession and ownership of the said plot or not?
