This query is : Resolved
Normally, Any document which requires stamp duty, is first stamped by way of franking, and then signed/executed.
I have a query that i had an agreement which was formed by two parties. Due to mistake, one of the party signed the document before it could be franked for stamp duty. The document got franked thereafter, even through it was signed by one person. The other person signed that document after franking.
Whether such document remains valied or it needs to be corrected
My Second Query is Whether a Gerneral/Special Power of attorney concerning to carry out a business, has to be "COMPULSORILY" Notarised ? or such document without notarising is a valid and enforceable document.

I beg to differ that a POA has to be mandatorily notarized, in fact I suggest that it is mandatory to have it registered as described in S.32 & S.33 of the Registration Act to be recognised as valid and conclusive proof of evidence
