Is there any rule, that the documents should be written in particular language for registration? Can document written in Marathi be presented for registration at Bangalore?

India is a country of various languages so it would be impossible for any registering officer to know all the languages used in the country.

Section 19 of Indian Registration Act refers to the documents in languages not understood by the registering officer. If any document which is in language not understood by the registering officer and which is not commonly used in the district, the registering officer may insist that documents presented for registration should be accompanied by a true translated copy into the language commonly used in district. Such translation has to be done by approved/recognized translators of the government. Rule No. 11 of the Karnataka Registration Rules 1965 recognizes the following languages as commonly used in districts and sub-districts:

1. Kannada and English - All districts and sub districts of the state

2. Telugu - Bellary Districts

3. Marathi - Districts of Belgaum, Bijapur, Dharwar,  North Kanara sub-districts of Aland, Bidar, Gulbarga.

4. Urdu - Districts of Bidar, Gulbarga, Raichur
