                    Sec.10 of jammu and kashmir adoption and maintenance act prvides the adoption of a person,who has not completed the age of 15 years n not beyond that

Registration of adoption deed is not manadatory. The adoption is completed by an actual giving and taking and after the ceremony called Datta Homan (oblation to the fire) has been performed. However this may not be essential in all cases as to the validity of adoption.

The adoption deed is not to be registered (except in Uttar Pradesh). Except where it declares or reserves an interest worth Rs. 100 or more for a third person in an immovable property.
However authority to adopt is to be registered under section 17(3), Indian Registration Act.T
