Dear Ms. Mamta
AMOUNT (ENTRY 62, SCHEDULE I, OF INDIAN STAMP ACT, 1899)
The Government has prescribed a stamp duty of, Rs.0.25 for every hundred rupees (100 RS.) or part thereof the value of the share, i.e. the price at which shares were brought (commission price), and not the face value of shares under transfer.
Violation of this provision will attract penal provisions to the company, under stamp Act.
In case of gift of shares there is a necessity to mention the consideration as the shares are being transferred free of consideration. However, stamp duty thereon will have to be paid on the basis of the market value of the shares on the date of the gift.
