Whether the General Power of Attorney requires registration?

A Power of Attorney need not be registered under the Registration Act even if it relates to an immovable property since it does not create any legal right to the attorney. However, a power of attorney is required to be stamped according to the nature of the authority delegated. A power of attorney authorizing the attorney to sell an immovable property and for consideration is required to be stamped as a conveyance but need not be registered.  If the power of attorney is only for presenting the document for registration and for admitting the execution thereof on behalf of the Executant, such a power of attorney should be registered before the concerned registrar.
