Citizens of the state of UP are required to pay stamp duty to the respective Central Government and Uttar Pradesh State Government (while executing wills, deeds, agreements, etc.). Basically, stamp duty is charged on the execution of deeds such as affidavits, wills, deeds, certificates, bonds, gifts, lease, adoption, etc. and once Stamp duty has been paid, the deed is said to be registered.

Uttar Pradesh Stamp Act, 1899

Stamp Duty collected by the State is an important source of revenue. The Indian Stamp Act of 1889 was used as the State Stamp Act of Uttar Pradesh at the same time until it was amended by the State. Over the last century, there have been several changes, Rules and amendments made to the Indian Stamp (Uttar Pradesh Amendment) Act.

A notification issued in 2013 authorized the use of e-Stamping in the State of UP. This was followed by a notification issued in 2016 announcing the e-payment facility of stamp duty in the State to ease the process of property registration in Uttar Pradesh. In the same year, the UP Government also hiked registration and stamp duty charges for home buyers from 5% to 7% (an increase of 2%) in Noida and greater Noida (7% was the nominal charge for the rest of the State of UP). A rebate of  Rs 10,000 (on the 7%) is given if the property is transferred to a female owner. UP allowed the payment of stamp duty through net banking.

For marriage registration, couples with Aadhaar cards (linked to their respective mobile numbers) need not contact the sub-contracting office under the basis based registration system.

The cost for registration is Rs 10 per day from one month prior to the date of marriage and Rs 20 per month from the date of marriage.
