The stamp seller turnover is limited to the value of his commission part. The value of stamp paper doesnt get counted for the turnover calculation. https://taxtitans.com/tax_questions_and_answers/what-is-the-limit-of-turnover-for-stamp-vendor-us-44ab/

Generally, stamp vendor purchases stamp paper from Government Treasury at discounted prize ,as determined by Government ,and sells to end users at face value. The difference, thus, he earns is 'discount' and not commission. In view of that, for the threshold limit of tax audit 'sales figure' has to be considered.
