After the precedent and the requirement of stamp to make a contract legally applicable, it is equally important to understand the pillars of the contract through the provisions of Sections 4 and 7 of the Indian Contract Act,1872 (Law). It was at this time that the State of Maharashtra introduced the e-SBTR (e-SBTR) system, which provided for “stamping” facilities by authorized banks, which also reduced administrative costs.  Rule 20 of Karnataka stamps (payment of tax by electronic stamp means) Rules, 2009 We obtain our agreements from the French bank and then the signatories physically sign the document in question. Now that we have received Class 2 e-signatures from our signatories, how are we going to execute the digital signature francization documents? We are in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. However, the importance of punching an instrument cannot be overstated, as there is no promise value if it cannot be implemented. Therefore, the unavailability of electronic marking facilities in a state is a stumbling block. The government of Karnataka, NCT of Delhi, have taken over the services of Stock Holding Corporation of India Limited, an agency created by the Government of India for electronic sealing purposes. On the other hand, the Government of Maharashtra has introduced the secure banking E-SBTR system that allows citizens to pay stamp duty and online registration. The Maharashtra Stamp and Registrations Department empties its circular entitled “Difficulties in paying stamp duty on loan documents and disclosure of privacy during the blockade” of April 27, 2020 (“circular”), introduced certain discharge measures for residents. In accordance with the circular, stamp duty may be paid on the first working day following the lifting of the blockade, in accordance with the provisions of the Maharashtra Stamp Act, read by the General Clauses Act, 1897, for all instruments executed during the blockade, on the first working day following the lifting of the blockage, and this document is considered duly stamped in accordance with Section 17 of the Stamp Act. If, for any reason, the document could not be stamped on such a first day of work, the document may also be submitted for decision to the stamp collector within one month of the end of the blockage. With the help of online banking institutions, all online electronic stamp services are made available to state residents through the government accounting system. Before this result, it can be concluded that all hopes have not yet been lost and that companies can attempt to continue their activities electronically without major obstacles.
Parties who enter into an agreement have little consequence. The three stamp methods above are attracted by the consequences of non-payment of stamps under stamp laws. For example, instruments that are not properly stamped cannot be considered evidence under Section 35 of the Indian Stamp Act. Documents of financial interest that have not been stamped are not considered evidence of the Court of Justice. On 20 April 2020, the Ministry of Finance invited the governments of the federal states to give appropriate instructions to the collector before collecting late fees for loan contracts or other loan instruments. The communication asked only the governments of the federal states and did not mention sanctions instructions.  indiacode.nic.in/bitstream/123456789/2331/1/a1899____2.pdf In this unprecedented period, the physical footprint of the instruments has become obsolete and, once again, the Internet has come to the aid. But the possibility of an electronic buffer can only be used in a few states/UT in India such as NCT delhi, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Himachal Pradesh, etc.
