eStamp


Registrars of Companies have to ensure that proper stamp duty is paid on the instruments registered with their office. As of now, physical submission of documents is mandatory where stamp duty is levied in order to ascertain that applicable stamp duty has been paid. In the present scenario, even though the eForm is submitted instantly, the RoC office has to wait for receipt of physical stamp papers to initiate necessary processing. It results in service delivery time getting longer. Hence, in furtherance of e-governance initiatives, provisions regarding stamp duty applicable on filing of e-forms have been amended and stakeholders shall have facility to pay stamp duty in electronic manner also. As of now, this process shall cover Form 1(including MoA, AoA), Form 5 and Form 44 only, accordingly revised eforms are being introduced w.e.f. 12.09.2009. These provisions shall be applicable to the eforms filed subsequent to this amendment. In case eforms filed earlier are 'Resubmitted' after implementation of this change, e-stamp shall not be applicable.Keeping in view the requirement of stakeholders awareness, process of e-stamp has not been made mandatory, meaning thereby, stakeholders have option to pay stamp duty in electronic manner through MCA21 system or in physical form as per the existing procedure.Further this process shall be applicable only to such States/Union Territories which have agreed to the request of Ministry of Corporate Affairs for collection of e-stamp duty on their behalf.

List of eForms to which eStamping will be applicable

  • Form 1, (including MoA, AoA)
  • Form 5
  • Form 44
  • Form 67
