The introduction of e-stamping has yielded a revenue of over Rs 1,194.67 crore to Haryana government from April 2016 to December 27, 2016, state Revenue Minister Abhimanyu said today.

He said that the first-of-its-kind initiative was introduced to put an end to the usage of security printed stamp papers and eliminate the possibility of frauds related to fake stamp papers.

“The state is able to save more than Rs 20 crore being paid by state government as commission charges and it will not have to maintain a huge inventory of stamp papers in the treasuries,” he said.

“By using this system, the citizens can generate the stamp paper using e-GRAS server of Finance Department ( egrashry.nic.in) at their homes by paying stamp fee through internet banking. This application was developed by National Informatics Centre, Haryana with Integrated Finance Management System and Property Registration System,” he said in an official release here.

Abhimanyu said that the e-stamp amount goes to the government account immediately after generation of challan.
