Evasion of stamp duty: Punjab govt starts process of recovery

Phagwara: Punjab government has started the process of recovery of the amount lost by the state exchequer due to evasion of stamp duty, Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia said on Tuesday.

“The process of recovery has started and those found guilty will be dealt with,” he said while answering a query regarding a RTI application filed by the Congress party (RTI cell) sometime back which had unravelled evasion of stamp duty in the state, resulting in loss to the tune of Rs 200 crore.
Asked if revenue officials were said to be guilty of charging deficient stamp duty which resulted in huge loss to the state exchequer, Majithia quipped that all the names will be tackled.
However, he did not say anything more on the matter.
After a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) was filed with Punjab and Haryana High Court in this regard, the court had directed the Punjab government to take appropriate action.
Majithia said e-stamping had started in the state and revenue work was being made further transparent and paperless.
The Minister, who also holds portfolio of New and Renewable Energy, called upon farmers to take to Solar Projects as part of crop diversification programme.
“Farmers should come forward to lease out their land for solar projects. It will be a win-win situation for them. They will earn from the lease as well as use their land, leaving aside traditional cropping,” he said.
He admitted that government is faced with unavailability of land for undertaking renewable energy resources projects.

The Revenue Minister urged the Union government to extend special economic package for Punjab so that impetus could be given to the ongoing development, besides creating new job avenues.
Thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for awarding Amritsar the status of heritage city, Indian Institute of Management, besides AIIMS along with Central University, Bikram Singh Majithia said the NDA had ended the decade-long discrimination being meted out to the state by the Congress.
Ridiculing the prediction of Amritsar MP Captain Amarinder Singh regarding 2017 polls, Majithia said, “Captain should understand the fact that development is one and only preference of the electorate of Punjab. Development has been foremost mission of SAD-BJP combine.” He said after Partap Singh Bajwa, now Rajinder Kaur Bhattal had opened a front against him. Terming Captain as a “absentee from Amritsar”, Majithia said he backstabbed the residents of the city by remaining absent not only from the constituency but also from Lok Sabha. He alleged that he was running away from his responsibilities by ignoring the aspirations of the people of his constituency.
