Ordinance is a law that is promulgated by the President of India only when the Indian parliament is not in session. President promulgates an ordinance on the recommendation of the union cabinet. Likewise, the Governor of a state can issue ordinances under Article 213 of the Constitution, when the state legislative assembly (or either of the two Houses in states with bicameral legislatures) is not in session. The ordinance making power is the most important legislative power of the President and the Governor. In Manupatra, Central and State Ordinances are available.
‘Stamp Duty’ is a tax that is levied on single property purchases or documents. A physical revenue stamp had to be attached to or impressed upon the document to show that stamp duty had been paid before the document was legally effective. More modern versions of the tax no longer require an actual stamp. The Indian Stamp Act of 1899 is an in-force Act of the Government of India for the charging of stamp duty on instruments recording transactions. In Manupatra, the stamp duty of various states is defined. This also includes few amending acts for certain States.
‘Suit Valuation’ is an Act to prescribe the mode of valuing certain suits for the purpose of determining the jurisdiction of Courts with respect thereto.
Valuation of a suit is of two types. A suit must be valued for two purposes:
(1) for determining the pecuniary jurisdiction of the court in which it should be filed, and
(2) for fixation of court fee to be paid
In Manupatra, Suit valuation is categorized according to various States, since they have separate Court fee and suit valuation Act (eg: Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana, Tamil Nadu)
