The Kerala Stamp Act, 1959 is a law that governs the use of stamps in the state of Kerala, India. It specifies the types of instruments that require stamping, the amount of stamp duty payable, and the procedures for stamping instruments.
The Act defines an “instrument” as any document that is used to create, transfer, or terminate a legal right or obligation. Some of the common types of instruments that are subject to stamp duty under the Act include:
The amount of stamp duty payable on an instrument depends on its nature and value. The Act provides a schedule that lists the different types of instruments and the corresponding stamp duty rates.
The Act also specifies the procedures for stamping instruments. Instruments can be stamped at any of the designated government offices, such as the Collector’s office or the Registration office. The stamp duty can be paid in cash or by cheque.
The Act also provides for penalties for non-compliance. If an instrument is not stamped, it is inadmissible in evidence and the person who executed the instrument may be liable to a fine.
