What are the penalties for non-payment of the requisite stamp duty?

Previously, the penalty was an amount not exceeding 10 times the amount of the proper duty. As per the recent amendments, a penalty of 2% per month on the proper duty for the period of default will be levied, subject to a maximum of twice the deficient portion of duty. Also, instruments are liable to be impounded until the proper stamp duty is paid.
