• Registration of sale agreement after paying stamp duty

Two months ago I have paid stamp duty on a new flat in Pune. It may take two more months for me to come to India to register sale deed.

Is there any time limit for registration after paying stamp duty?

In the state of Maharashtra, stamp duty purchase is valid for the period of six month from the date of purchase. Therefore, the document must be executed within a period of six month of purchase of stamp duty.

Contrary 

According to Supreme Court Judgement in the case of Thiruvengada Pillai vs. Navaneethammal and Anr., the stamp papers do not have any expiry period. The stipulation of the period of six months prescribed in Section 54 is only for the purpose of seeking refund of the value of the unused stamp paper, and not for use of the stamp paper. Section 54 does not require the person who has purchased a stamp paper, to use it within six months. Therefore, there is no impediment for a stamp paper purchased more than six months prior to the proposed date of execution, being used for a document.

1. The time limit for registration is what has been incorporated in the agreement. 

2. There is no legal bar on registration after the payment of stamp duty.

Hello,

1)There is no limitation for registration after paying stamp duty if it is done within the same year of your paying the stamp duty.If you wish to get a refund of the stamp duty it must be applied for in the same year.

2) Therefore your registering the property after two months from now should not do any harm.

In Indian Oil Corporation Limited vs Megi Control Systems Pvt. Ltd, held by the Bombay high court that registration on the same stamp paper after expiry of six months is invalid and such deed has no probative force.

A. Generally, once you paid the stamp duty it can be used for 6 months. Thereafter it cannot be used for the same.

B. In your case, you can register the same without any legal hassles.

1. You are deficient in providing details,

2. How did you pay the stamp duty to the registrar at Pune?

3. However, at Kolkata, IG receipt is initialy  issued after entire amount towards stamp duty and registration fee is paid,

4. It may take even 4/6 months to get the registered title deed.
