An authorised collection centre of e-stamping was inaugurated at the Sivasagar deputy commissioner office recently.

It was inaugurated by Sivasagar DC Dr S Lakshmanan with a view to facilitating the citizen in procuring the e-stamp certificate.

The centre would also ensure paying stamp duty to the government in a transparent way.

Inaugurating the Centre, the DC elaborated upon the benefits and features of e-stamping.

“E-stamping is a secure web-based system to facilitate collection of stamp duty,” he said.

“It will help in tackling fraudulence and make the payment of stamp duty easier and glitch-free,” the DC further added.

He further said with its easy availability, citizens will now be worry-free of any artificial scarcity of stamps.

Area manager of e-stamping (North East) under Stock Holding Corporation of India Subroto Chakrabarty elaborated upon the technical aspects involved with the facility.

He also briefed upon e-Stamping mobile app launched for verification of e-Stamp certificate by the citizen through manual entry or scan.

E-stamping in Assam was launched on June 17, 2009, and the roll-out of e-stamping services in 30 districts of the state started in January 2018.

The e-Stamp certificate is a tamper-proof document and captures all the important details of the transaction.

These details are certificate issue date, first-party name, second party name, property description, article number, consideration amount and stamp duty amount.

Each certificate bears a certificate number which is the Unique Identification Number (UIN).

These transaction details are printed on the e-Stamp, and hence the certificate cannot be misused.

The Government and the general public can easily verify the authenticity of the e-Stamp certificate by using the facility of online verification.
