What is the difference between the witness and the consenting witness?

- by Vijaykumar, Bangalore

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 way of 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 the execution of the registration of the document in the concerned sub-registrar’s office.
