This query is : Resolved
I need a clarification.
When a partition suit is referred to Lok Adalat and when an award is passed specifying shares of all parties to the suit, whether such award is treated as final decree or partition deed? Whether such awards need registration? Please enlighten me the procedure.

Registration is must. The court decree will be registered by the Registrar. You are to pay stamp duty as per applicable in your state. It is generally on one biggest part value.
