POA older than 1 month ? then Life Certificate Mandatory
This is one of the new rules for registering properties in India using Power Of Attorney route. This rule came into effect from last week.
Chennai registration office has come up a rule that any POA which is registered and older than a month will require life certificate from the POA Issuer.
This is additional hardships for people abroad as getting this POA document filled and getting it signed by a Doctor is not an easy task. I am not sure if Doctors in US will sign such a certificate so easily.
So be guarded when you send your POA for property related work.
One of my friends tried registering his sale deed in Saidapet registration office and since POA issued by him to his father was older than a month, he was asked for Life Certificate.
