A.Hi,
For a Release deed to be legally acceptable and valid, it must be registered. When such a deed is registered, the stamp duty is paid. However, showing the payment of consideration would change the form of the release deed to a sale deed which would attract more taxes.

A.The release deed must be registered to give its effect under the law and since it will be registered there will be stamp duty and registration charge on it. You need not mention the consideration amount on the release deed as if you do so it will notionally become a sale deed on which you will have to pay ad valorem to stamp duty.
