The Superintendent of Stamps, with Bombay as headquarters, is the authority who controls the supply and sale of State stamps in the Stale. In the Amravati district, the Collector of Amravati is the administrative head of the department. There is no independent officer in the district specially in charge of stamps. The work is done by the Treasury Head Clerk under the supervision of the Treasury Officer, Amravati, who is a gazetted officer. He has the charge of the local depot at Amravati and is responsible for the maintenance of the stock of stamps, their distribution to the branch depots and their sale to the public. The Treasury Officer is empowered to grant refunds of the value of unused, spoiled and obsolete stamps presented to the treasury within the prescribed period. A branch depot is located at every taluka or mahal headquarters and is in charge of a Sub-Treasury Officer, i.e., the Tahsildar or Naib-Tahsildar.

To suit public convenience, stamps are sold not only at the local depot and the branch depots but also at various other centres by vendors authorised by Government. There are 8 such vendors in the district. Sales are restricted to the value not exceeding Rs. 50 in each case. Similarly, non-judicial stamps above the value of Rs. 50 in each case are sold at the Treasury and Sub-Treasury and the Stamp Head Clerk and the Sub-Treasury Officers work as ex-officio stamp vendors. Stamps below this value in each case are sold by the authorised vendors.

The total income from stamp duty realised in the Amravati district during 1961-62 was Rs. 5.07,437 for judicial stamps and Rs. 6.28,804 for non-judicial stamps. The vendors are allowed a small discount, and this in the year 1961-62 amounted to Rs. 2,818 under judicial stamps and Rs. 20,567 under non-judicial stamps.
