Haryana Government has decided to make E-Stamping mandatory in four districts of Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonipat and Panchkula from May 1, 2016, in the first phase. The system is likely to be implemented in other districts in phased manner.
The system would also tighten the noose over the stamp paper vendors who have been fleecing the customers by overcharging.
While stating this in Chandigarh on Thursday, Finance Minister, Capt Abhimanyu said that in these districts, all other offices or agencies that is Treasury Office or Sub Treasury Office and authorized State Bank of India branches would stop selling Stamp Paper (Non Judicial). Stamp vendors would generate Stamp Papers (Non Judicial) up to Rs 10,000 per person only through e-Stamping module, he added.
Capt Abhimanyu said that any citizen could generate stamp paper online through E-Stamping system, which is available on website https://egrashry.nic.in. This system is implemented in two parts. The first part makes the payment for stamp papers in the relevant receipts head whereas the second part generates E-Stamp paper through E-Stamp portal after online confirmation of payment.
The Finance Minister said that after successful payment through Payment Aggregator Services by using net banking, credit card or debit card and manual payment through draft or cash after generating requisite challan on Electronic Government Receipt Accounting System (E-GRAS) portal, the depositors could generate online E-Stamp papers immediately and seek the date of registration for Revenue Authority by using Haryana Registration Information System (HARIS) portal.
Capt Abhimanyu said that Electronic Government Receipt Accounting System (E-GRAS) has been implemented all over the State and is running successfully. The Revenue Authority, after verifying the payment online through E-GRAS portal, would register the document and the system would automatically deface the E-Stamp and corresponding Government Receipt Number (GRN) online to avoid duplicity.
The citizen could apply for refund of unused E-Stamp Paper on E-GRAS portal www.egrashry.nic.in, he added.
