Try to obtain that circular which speaks of Stamp duty. There is no such provision that for mutation of a name stamp duty is required. Once you have produced succession certificate and other formalities being fulfilled they are bound to enter your name. However check that circular out and if indeed there is a circular then you are required to pay stamp duty. However satisfy urself as regards the contents and veracity. If u can pls put the circular online. Also confirm whether the circular has a retrospective effect meaning thereby mutations done before the circular too are covered by it or not.
