Power of Attorney in India

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

Power of Attorney is used in many real estate transactions in India. In fact, there are instances when people opt for Power of Attorney instead of the property registration to save on exorbitant property stamp duty and registration charges.

The literal definition of Attorney is ‘a person, typically a lawyer, appointed to act for another in business or legal matters’. Therefore, in real estate transactions, a typical Power of Attorney would mean one person authorizing another person to act on his/her behalf as a legal representative to make binding legal and financial decisions. The person who gives Power of Attorney is known as donor or Principal, while the person who receives the Power of Attorney is known as Agent or holder.

In Delhi, many real estate transactions take place on ‘Power of Attorney’. Since property circle rates in Delhi are extremely high, therefore, there are people who opt for Power of Attorney to save on stamp duty and registration charges. However, there are risks attached to such transactions in case the Agent or holder does not discharge his/her duties accurately and honestly. For example, if the Agent or holder defaults on EMIs on a given property, then, the Principal’s property may be taken over by the authorized bodies by issuing a SARFAESI notice and auctioned for recovery of dues.
