What is the procedure for registration of an instrument?

Once adequate stamp duty is affixed on an instrument and it is dated and signed by the parties, and attested (where required) by witnesses, it can be lodged for registration after payment of the registration fee.

All parties signing the instrument are required to attend the office of the concerned Sub Registrar of Assurances either by themselves or through their constituted attorney under a power of attorney to admit execution of the instrument.

A passport-size photograph, original power of attorney, personal identification such as passport or income tax PAN Card, adequate Xerox copies of the original instrument are some of the essentials required for registration.

After lodging an instrument, it is registered and seal of the Sub Registrar is affixed on the instrument, thereafter the original instrument is returned back to the parties.
