Paying heed to the media reports about the black-marketeering of stamp papers in the Capital, the Delhi government on Friday urged the citizens to come forth and lodge complain against the defaulting stamp vendors with deputy commissioner or sub divisional magistrate of their local area. Citizens can also approach the revenue headquarters for registering complains.

"In case if stamp vendor is charging more than the face value of the stamp paper, complain must be lodged forthwith against the stamp vendor for cancellation of license as well as criminal prosecution to the area deputy commissioner or sub divisional magistrate as well as to revenue headquarters, details of which are already uploaded on the website (," the office of divisional commissioner, Delhi government, said in a public notice.

The government had recently stopped the procurement of stamp papers in Rs 500 and below denominations - up to Rs 10, and introduced electronic stamping in the given denominations, which will be functional by August 1. Before August, citizens can obtain the stamp papers from the authorised collection centres (ACCs), appointed by the Stock Holding Corporation Of India (SHCIL), the nodal agency overseeing implementation of e-stamping.

"The list of such ACCs along with their address and phone numbers has been uploaded on the website. The government has instructed SHCIL to make a regular check on the ACCs and ensure that public may not face any inconvenience in getting the e-stamping of the paper," the notice said.

Meanwhile, the authorities have conducted raids on Thursday based on the reports published in the news dailies and arrested 33 registered stamp paper vendors selling stamp paper at a price higher than its face value.
