I have purchased a property in Davanagere and have paid the full consideration. Is it necessary to get the sale deed registered and what are the consequences of non-registration?

Sale of any immovable property valued more than Rs.100/- needs compulsory registration as per Section 49 of the Indian Registration Act, 1908. The unregistered Sale deed will not convey valid legal title to the purchaser.
Registration of any document creates permanent record in Sub Registrar Office and has priority over unregistered documents when used as evidence.
