e-Court Fee System

e-Court Fee System

In order to make the system transparent for the collection of judicial stamp duty, the government has decided to go for technological intervention.

Recently the government approved to implement an e-Court fee system in the entire Jammu & Kashmir for collection of Judicial Stamp Duty.

J&K government has appointed Stock Holding Corporation of India Limited (SHCIL) as central record keeping agency to devise and implement the e-Court fee system. The system gives an option to citizens to pay JSD online as well as offline- through stamp vendors

Pursuant to the selection of SHCIL as Central Record Keeping Agency, on September 22, 2021, an agreement with SHCIL was signed by the Law Department of Jammu & Kashmir.

Rollout of e-Court fee system would provide citizens an easy mode of paying stamp duty and would also enhance the scope of work for stamp vendors and augment their income. It would also usher more transparency in the entire process.

SHCIL is a Government Company and has already implemented an e-Stamping system in the entire UT. The SHCIL so far has issued 43 lakh e-Stamp certificates and collected stamp duty worth Rs. 510 crore through e-Stamping system in the intervening period of 3 months, between agreement signing and rollout.

SHCIL representatives with the help of the Law Department visited each District Court and trained the officers as well as the stamp vendors there. Total 244 court officers and 373 stamp vendors have been trained so far.
