but that is for indian stamp act which only levies stamp duty on few documents while documents as given in state stamp act , state act will apply. hence for maharshtra if validity period is given then, it is correct.
Dobuts about validity period of stamp paper is raised on several times to LCI. I would like to know from LCI members (like me) when there is a Supreme Court Judgement, it should apply to all States except in Jammu & Kashmir. SC has clearly given in WP (CIVIL) 290 of 2001 that there is no time limit and the 6 months period is only for getting refund, if a Stamp Paper would like to return the unused Stamp paper and to get back the value of Stamp Paper. I am unable to understand how State of Maharashtra Can have their own Acts/Rules with regard to validity of Stamp Paper when Supreme Court Judegement is quite clear on this.
I would be happy to receive the feed back from other members of LCI.Regards, N.Murali
