Transfer rights to purchase land



Currently my brother's residential status is NRI, he wants to purchase some agricultural land in his home town but due to this Covid-19 pandemic he can't travel to India.

So my question is is there any legal way by which i can act as a reprentative on behalf of him and land will be registered on his name.

For example if he writes power of attorney to my name then i can sell his property on behalf of him similarily is there any legal procedure by which i can purchase too  on behalf of him.

I hope my query is clear.

Thanks in advance...

An NRI cannot purchase any agricultural land or plantation property in India. Consequently, NRIs cannot purchase farmhouses in India. So, if an NRI wants to purchase a farmhouse or plantation, she/he will have to approach the RBI for specific permission and the RBI will consider this on a case-to-case basis.

Hope this helps.

@ Arvind,

Your moot court question is absolutely clear.

Ans: Obtain a registered power of attorney, if it is a true story .

LCI Admin should have deleted your account and such academic topics which is abuse of the site.

I am extremly sorry sir if i have violated any policy of LCI. I was not aware of the fact that a person can not ask multiple quetions on this website but one thing i can assure you that wahtever quieries i have raised till date are genuine. i needed legal advice from experts so instead of doing rounds of lawyer's offices in my city i thought to put my quiries here.

Om praksh ji, i was aslo addressing to Dr. vashisth.

he said i am abusing LCI and this platform is not for students that's why i appologized if i have violated any LCI policy.

Since he is very senior to me so he must have known better use of the platform. But one thing i can say that this platform helped me alot in all the queries i posted here.

Mr. Vashisht, the platform is for students as much as it is for any litigant looking for Experts' help or a lawyer helping anyone. 

It can be a Moot court question, it can be a student seeking mentoring from the experts, it can be a lawyer seeking guidance from a lawyer, or even a student asking for help with an academic question.
