Hi Mr Ganesh,
According to Sec. 17 of Registration Act-1908, any lease exceeding 11 months has to be compulsorily registered. If you do not register it, it will have no evidentiary value in the eye of law. It will not be admitted as evidence in the court.

perumal Sir is very correct and to the point and quoted the correct provision of law. Every lease agreement beyond one year are compulsarily registrable. that is the reason why eve\ry one go for lease for 11 months. Even if written for 11 months you should comply with stamp Act.
