Dear Bhojraj,

You have to pay stamp duty as per the state law in which company's registered office is situated.


With reference to your several querries, mostly you are asking for Maharashtra/Mumbai, so as per my knowledge, in Maharashtra, it is one rupee for every thousand rupee or part there of,  of the value of shares issued, adhehsive stamp or  otherwise impressed stamps  to be used is Rs.1/-.

As per the Indian stamp act the Stamp duty is payable on tthe amount for which you have purcased the Shares.

It is 0.75 per 100/-rs of part thereof.

An Indian company has entered into an agreement with a foreign party for supply of goods by foreign party to the Indian party. The agrement has been made by Indian party on its letter head which has been signed by both the party. 

My query is : Whether the agreement made on letterhead of Indian party is a valid I mean whether it should be executed on the stamp paper and what will be the value of stamp paper.


Looking forward to your response please.
