Uttarakhand launches e-stamping Today

Written by Anil Singh

Uttarakhand today, i.e. 02 march 2012 became the 9th state in the country to launch e-stamping.

e-stamping ensures a secure way of paying non-judicial stamp duty to government. e-stamping is an e-governance initiative introduced by Uttarakhand Finance Department in association with the Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd.

About e-stamping:

e-stamping simply means ‘electronic Stamping’, just as e-commerce means electronic commerce, i.e. selling things electronically. E-stamping is a computer-based application; by which non-judicial stamp duty can be paid to the government, in a secure way.

In the first phase, e-stamping will be introduced in the four districts of Dehra Dun, Haridwar, Udhamsingh Nagar and Nainital.

The state government has also inked deals with 45 branches of the Punjab National Bank (PNB) in these districts through which e-stamps can be sold.
