Registration of POA in both the referred case is must otherwise the alleged POA cannot be used as a genuine document authorising for sale. The subsequent document prepared on stamp paper can be paid more reliance than former if any dispute arises.

I too agreed with the view of Rajkumarji.  In both the cases POAs shall be registered that too for sale of property.

Thanks for replay,How about Buying property with Unregistred POA 


In my opinion, the adjudicated POA can be enforced in case of any dispute arises than the POA typed in the Stamp paper pertaining to India.   The meaning of adjudication is only pertaining to stamp duty i.e., we are adjudicating the POA only for Stamp duty.  Moreover, the adjudication is done only in the office of the District Registrar instead of Sub Registrar Office, which is superior authority.  Hence the power to adjudicate the POA is not delegated to the Sub Registrar as it is lies with the Registrar.   And in my opinion, the stamp paper of India cannot be executed in abroad and notarised or attested by an advocate or Consulate General of India.
