In continuation of Circular Order, No. 11 of July last, it is notified, for the information and guidance of all officers subordinate to the Board, that under the orders of the Government of Bengal, in the General Department, dated 3rd November 1870, the subjoined form should be adopted in reporting the deaths of European Uncovenanted Officers. This form properly filled in, should be submitted immediately upon the death of any uncovenanted European Officer, for transmission to Government:

UNDER the provisions of Section 24, Act XVIII of 1869, when an improperly stamped document is impounded by a Registering

1870

Officer and sent to the Collector, the Collector is required either to prosecute the parties to the instrument, when it appears that Rev. Cir. there was an intention to evade payment of the proper stamp duty; or in other cases, to levy a penalty under Section 20, when the parties appear before him to claim their document.

It has, however, been brought to the notice of the Board that, in these last mentioned cases, when the Collector sees no sufficient grounds for instituting a prosecution, parties very seldom appear to claim their documents, and that this omission is probably owing to the fear that a severe penalty or punishment will be the result. As any undue severity in carrying out the provisions of Section 20 of the Stamp Act is calculated to lead to the ev asion of both the Stamp and Registration Laws, the Board are of opinion that Collectors would do well to exercise the discretion vested in them of remitting the penalty (vide Clause b, Section 24), and in no case inflict a penalty exceeding of the

) amount prescribed by Section 20, when the error has arisen from ig norance of the law.

A copy of this Circular Order will be forwarded to the Registrar General, with a request that he will inform all Sub-Registrars and parties who may produce insufficiently stamped documents before them, of the course which will be, in future, adopted.

a certified purchaser, and therefore not affected by section 21,
