Registration of power of attorney is not compulsory. it is optional

Registration of power of attorney authenticates the deed of power of attorney

Power of Attorney shall be attested by two or more adult independent witnesses who are of sound mind

But to my knowledge, in special cases where GPA/SPA is given for execution of a sale deed or for purpose of presenting a sale deed before the Sub-Registrar, the said GPA/SPA requires registration.

The Power of Attorney is not compulsory registrable document, However, by virtue of the Registration (Gujarat Amedment) Act, 2008 came in to force with effect from 21st July, 2008 the Power of Attorney relating to transfer of immovable property possession whereof has been or is handed over to the purported attorney holder, inter alia, is compulsory registrable document in the State of Gujarat.
Guest (Expert) 08 August 2009
only the GPA pertaining to the immovable property is to be compulsorily registered.

Other GPAs, such as 'agent for court case', 'agent to represent before tribunals/trademark registry' etc, it needs only to be duly notarised.
