Stamp duty amounts to 1% of the total rent, plus the annual down payment or 500 Rs.-, depending on the lowest price. Most leases are signed for 11 months so they can avoid stamp duty and other fees. Under the Registration Act of 1908, registration of a lease is mandatory if the tenancy period is more than 12 months.
If an agreement is registered, stamp duty and registration tax must be paid. For example, in Delhi, for a lease of up to five years, stamp paper costs 2% of the total annual rent of one year. Add a flat fee of Rs100 if a security deposit is part of the agreement. For a lease of more than 5 years but less than 10 years, it represents 3% of the value of the average annual rent for a year. For 10 years and more, but less than 20 years, it is 6% of the value of the average annual rent of a year. The stamp paper may be in the name of the tenant or landlord. In addition, a flat-rate registration fee of EUR 1,100 million must be paid by the draft application (DD).

Both parties, the tenant and the landlord, must be present with two witnesses for the certificate to record the facts. If all parties are not present together, he/she must sign the mandate and give the plenipotentiary the power to sign the agreement. Stamp duty must be paid in accordance with Section 3 of the Indian Stamp Act, 1899.

An instrument or document to pay stamp duty is considered a legal and legitimate document and may be admitted into evidence in court. Any document that is not properly stamped cannot be admitted as evidence in court.
