The correct stamp duty for declaration is Rs 50 according to rajasthan stamp act. In this case the insufficient stamp duty has been paid. The court should not have admitted it into evidence. Higher court shall impound (in simple terms, confiscate) the document if it finds that the duty paid on the document was insufficient. The High court shall send the document to the concerned collector. It should also determine how much penalty has to be paid by the guilty person. However on the payment of penalty, the document will be admitted in evidence. Nevertheless the concerned collector may prosecute the person guilty of non payment of stamp duty.
