What is the difference between Witness and Consenting Witness?

Witness is only a witness to the signature of the parties to a document. Consenting Witness is not only a witness to the signature of the parties to the document but also he is aware of the transaction by giving his formal consent for the transaction. Consenting Witness releases his right, title and interest in the property under transaction. Consenting Witness should be present and admit execution of the registration of the documents in the concerned office of the Sub-Registrar.
