1. The petitioner was appointed as Notary Advocate on 18.3.1999. He applied for renewal of the same on 15.3.2002 along with stamp duty of Rs. 500/-. Subsequently by the order dated 3.9.2002 and 25.9.2002 his name was removed as a Notary Advocate and his application for renewal was rejected on the ground that he has filed renewal application with deficient stamp duty, hence the present writ petition.
2. We have heard counsel for the petitioners and the standing counsel for the respondents.
3. The petitioner had applied for renewal alongwith stamp fee of Rs. 500/- on the ground that this was notified stamp duty. When he came to know about the enhanced stamp duty he sent the same on 31.8.2002. This fact is not denied. In view of this, the renewal application could not be rejected on the ground that the stamp duty was insufficient.
4. In view of this, the order dated 3.9.2002 and 25.9.2002 are quashed. Respondent no. 1 may decide the application of renewal dated 15.3.2002 of the petitioner in accordance with law at an early date, if possible, within three months from the date of from the date of receipt of certified copy of this order. The petitioner alongwith certified copy of this order will also file a copy of his aforesaid renewal application, other necessary documents and a duly stamped self-addressed envelope. The concerned respondent after taking decision will communicate the same to the petitioner.
