With an aim to improve efficiency and check the pilferage of state's revenue, the chief minister gave his nod to abolish the use of physical stamp papers.
He said that e-stamp paper of any denomination can be obtained online in the form of print-out taken from any stamp paper vendor or from banks authorised by the state government.
Mann said that the move will help the general public, who often face difficulties in getting the stamp paper, and curb the stamp paper-related frauds.
