As per your query,
An adoption deed is required for adopting a child. It is executed by natural parents of the child in favor of adopting parents. Rules differ according to the religion of the parents. In respect of the Hindus, it is an essential part of the process of adoption as per the act and the rules in this regard.
The steps involved in the registration of an adoption deed are as follows:
- First, get an adoption deed drafted or prepared by a legal expert/advocate. Stamp paper is purchased for the execution
- Then, the date is fixed for the registration in the sub-registrar office. The Government Registration fee has to be paid
- All the parties along with two witnesses visit the sub-registrar office on the fixed day for the registration of the adoption deed
- Collect the registered adoption deed after a week
Section 16 provides that, if the adoption deed is registered, it shall be presumed that the adoption has been done after complying with the provisions of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act. Thus, it is recommended to get the adoption deed registered, in the concerned Sub Registrar's office, to void possibilities of any legal compliance or, a dispute in the future.
