How does stamp paper in India work?

Specifically, what are the exact steps a person takes to use stamp paper? Do you write your lease (or whatever) out first, and then take the lease to the stamp vendor and get the stamp applied, or do you buy blank stamp paper and later print the lease on the paper? Does the document get signed before or after the stamp is applied? Does the stamp vendor witness the signatures?
Not as important to me (but interesting still) is what is the purpose? What happens if you write a lease and don't use stamp paper?
Any details, any stories, and any links or suggested references would be most appreciated.
