Speaking at the launch ceremony of the E-stamp portal, CM Mehmood said that it would help resolve property disputes, and people will also be able to verify them online to prevent fraud and forgery. As per the sources, the new system will work on the same pattern as launched in Punjab and Sindh, with features that will make verifying and downloading stamp papers easy. Users will just need a working internet connection to use the E-stamp paper portal.
Similarly, to acquire high-value non-judicial or judicial stamp papers, the user will only need to provide details about the reason for the purchase of the stamp paper, their name, the name of the seller, the person from whom the stamp papers will be purchased, and their CNIC numbers. The entire procedure would take around 15 minutes. Each stamp paper will be allocated a unique bar code for enhanced protection and online verification.
