Hi ,
Can anyone tell me the provision regarding the payment of stamop duty when the shares are alloted in the demat form.
I searched in FAQ of NSDL it says "the Issuer has to pay the relevant stamp duty as applicable irrespective whether it is issued in either physical or demat form. As per the Finance Act 2000, stamp duty is waived only for transfers within the depository."
this stamp duty as applicable is ???
and how it is paid.
If anyone can tell me the procedure of teh same.


Hi-  Will be paid through e-stamping. Plz refer the attached form. Rate of duty will be same as applicable in that particular state.

Stamp duty will also be paid on issue of share cert in demat form.


thanks neha! but can you please clarify your answer with some legal justification? for eg:- how are shares issued in demat form? and to whom share certificates are issued when shares are issued in electronic form? is it the depository participant? can you please highlight the basic procedure? thanks!

In case of demat i think we do not issue the share certificate then how we pay stamp duty.

please guide

Company Secretary

We have to pay consolidated stamp duty to the collector of stamps in case of demat shares.


whether stamp duty is to be paid when shares in DMAT form . Corporate Action has been done for new allotment, Dmat account and Master data also updated but stamp duty not paid? My query is that when we are allotting shares to shares and after filing PAS 3 with ROC, taking corporate action for electronic credit of shares without issuing share certificate to shareholders in such a case whether it is required to pay stamp duty??

Plz suggest
