M/S Shankar Construction v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 9603 of 2007  RD-AH 3174 (26 February 2007)
Hon. Anjani Kumar, J.
Hon. Dilip Gupta, J.
Heard counsel for the petitioner and the learned Standing Counsel.
The petitioner, by means of this petition, has prayed for the following relief:-
" issue a writ, order or direction in the nature of certiorari quashing the order/letter dated 8.2.2007 passed by Superintending Engineer, respondent no.4 (Annexure 2 to the writ petition)."
A perusal of the aforesaid order dated 8.2.2007 indicates that the petitioner has been asked to furnish the relevant stamp duty as per the Indian Stamp Act, 1899. Learned counsel for the petitioner has stated that the petitioner is liable to pay stamp duty as provided under Article 57(b) of Schedule 1-B of the Act. We are of the opinion that for the said purpose, the petitioner may file an application before the Superintending Engineer pointing out as to why he is liable to pay stamp duty as provided for under the aforesaid Article. This petition is premature and is, accordingly, dismissed.
