Revenue Stamp that is being used in other parts/states of India, except J & K is different in design and bears word 'INDIA'(in English & 'BHARAT' (in Hindi). Why words 'India' (in English) & 'Bharat' (in Hindi) are not being printed on J & K Revenue Stamps?

RAJ KUMAR President of stistamp said...

The fiscal stamps issued by state own revenue purpose, so no need of inscribed India and Bharat on stamps, Many states revenue overprinted state name for state revenue purpose. It is similar on line of other part of World, many USA states revenue stamps issued without inscribed USA. I don't think any thing wrong in the stamps.

Like J & k,does any other state of India have its own revenue stamp other than that of the Central /Union Govt.
Please post a copy here. Thanks

As far as my knowledge, no other state except J & K has got its own revenue stamp. It is because special status given to J & K under article 370 of Constitution of India.

Sikkim state also in same category, there is sec 370 apply for land revenue.

these stamps were used before the unification of indian republic, so why bothers abt all these.

Why we 'Bharateeya' in other parts of "our country" (except J&K and Sikkim)should bother, because when I was travelling first time in Shrinagar in a taxi which was engaged by me for full day for my official work (I was 'inspecting' one branch of State Bank of India)and at the end of the day, I asked for the 'stamped receipt' from the taxi-driver (for my official purpose), he told me that he does not have revenue stamp. So, I told him to use a 'revenue stamp' which I was carrying with me (as usual) and gave him with a request to affix it on his 'receipt' and sign thereon. I was shocked when he told me 'bluntly' that "YOUR Indian' revenue stamp will not be 'valid' here.("Ye apake India-ka stamp 'yaha' nahi chalega"). When I insisted for 'explanation for 'apake-india ka', he told me that the revenue stamp being used in J&K is for 50 paise only and it is different in design and size. Then, next day I went to nearby Post office and asked for 'revenue stamp' and was surprised to see that it was like what is displayed above. That is why my first query about J&K Revenue stamp. Such things may create 'separatist' attitude of J&K people, isn't it?

I am from Jammu and I just went to submit my PF forms in Hyderabad. My form was rejected because they didnt identify this revenue stamp. This is a joke on national systems.

That is why a uniform policy should be adopted by Govt of India through out the country.
