7. No legal recognition of document to which Stamp are not affixed

(1) In cases where no Stamp has been affixed to the document subject to the Stamp duty pursuant to this Act, such document shall not be recognized as legal.

(2) Notwithstanding anything contained in Sub-section (1), in cases where any one has not affixed the Stamp or affixed the Stamp at the rate lower than that set forth in the schedule, such document may be given legal validity by getting such person to affix such Stamp that is five times higher of the Stamp required to be affixed if no stamp has
been affixed and that is five times higher than the Stamp by which it is lesser if the stamp has been affixed at the lower rate or by collecting the sum equal to such duty.
