(2) The net proceeds in any financial year of any such duty or tax, except in so far as those proceeds represent proceeds attributable to Union territories, shall not form part of the Consolidated Fund of India, but shall be assigned to the States within which that duty or tax is leviable in that year and shall be distributed among those States in accordance with such principles of distribution as may be formulated by Parliament by law.

(3) Parliament may by law formulae principles for determining when a sale of purchase of, or consignment of, goods takes place in the course of inter­ State trade or commerce.

II Briefly, the schedule provided for in the constitution is as follows

  • (a) Under Article 246, such Stamp duties as are mentioned

in the Union List are levied by the Union, but, under Article

268, each State in which they are levied, collects and retains the proceeds (except in the case of Union Territories).

  • (b) Other Stamp duties are levied and collected by the

States, by virtue of the legislative entry in the State List.

  • (c) And the Concurrent List contains the following entry

44. Stamp duties other than duties or fees collected by means of judicial stamps, but not including rates of Stamp duty."

This entry deals with the general subject of stamps. Provisions other than those relating to rates of duty are, thus within the legislative power both the Union and the States.

  • (d) Broadly speaking, therefore, except as regards Union

territories, parliaments legislative power extends to­

  • (i) Rates of Stamp duty on the specified documents;

(ii) Machinery provisions, in respect of all documents.

III The position can be stated in the form of a Chart as follows
