I have a question on stamp papers. My father was an advocate/notary public in TN and he passed away a few months back. He had left behind some amount of unused stamp papers for which the date/year ranges from 2008-2014. He usually sells them for a little profit if the papers are of past years. Now that he has passed, I'm not sure what to do with the stamp papers he has left behind. I also have some of the papers worth Rs. 25000 that was bought for me to buy land and then the plan of buying the land was dropped. The stamp papers were unused. I know that normally stamp vendors sell it for a markup on top of what they paid in the treasury to get the stamp papers. With the digital stamp paper in place (eStampPaper), the old style printed stamp papers are not in use now.
I have a few questions on this:
What is the normal procedure and how to handle the papers?
Can I give it to some other advocate/notary public for face value? or more?
Will there be any issues dealing with these when I'm in a different profession?
Can I authorize someone to sell these papers for me?
What do I do with the stamp papers I got for my own purpose but never used?
Can I sell it back to the treasury? what documents do I need to have for this?
With the digital stamp papers now in practice, are these even worth maintaining/selling?
Appreciate your answers.
