The non judicial stamp paper cannot be purchased by anyone in advance and keep utilising it for different clients at different occasions. According to section 52B, a stamp paper should be used within six (6) months from the date of purchase. Any stamps not used within this period are invalid. 
As per section 34 of the Bombay Stamp Act, 1958, the stamp papers should be in the name of one of the parties who have signed/who would be signing the instruments.

record of notary public is a public record and court can take judicial notice of it. 

if notary public did not make entry in his record book in respect of stamp that stamp shall be treated as invalid.

There is no specific section in any act for this but the notaries do this on a regular basis, albeit as a matter of prudence it should always be purchased in favour of the party or parties concerned.
