Q:

Can I submit a license agreement for stamping electronically?

  

A:

If the license agreement is in the nature of a tenancy agreement with monthly rents, you may submit the stamping application online as other tenancy agreements. If it contains special terms e.g. a premium or the instrument has to be adjudicated, please present the original instrument to Stamp Office for assessment or adjudication.
