What is Adjudication as to stamp duty payable?

 Adjudication means determining the duty payable. Normally, the person paying the duty himself may decide the stamp duty payable and pay accordingly. 

However, in cases of complex documents, the person paying the duty may not be sure of the stamp duty payable. In such case, he can apply for opinion of Collector. He has to apply with draft document and prescribed fees.  

Collector will determine the stamp duty payable as per his judgment [section 31(1)].
