Running a Special Power of Attorney from Abroad
If you are an NRI (Non-Resident Indian) and need to execute a Power of Attorney (POA) outside India, there are a few steps you need to take to ensure that the POA is legally valid. This article will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to run a special power of attorney from abroad.
The first step is to have the POA authenticated by the Indian Consulate or Embassy in the country where it is being executed. In some countries, witnesses may be required at the embassy, but in some, this requirement is not mandatory. Once the POA has been authenticated, it should be sent to India by post.
The next step is to have the POA registered in India. This can be done by submitting the POA to the local Sub-Registrar’s office in the jurisdiction where the POA is to be executed. The Sub-Registrar will then register the POA and issue a certificate of registration.
Once the POA has been registered, it is legally valid and can be used to carry out the specified tasks. However, it is important to note that the POA must be renewed every three years in order to remain valid.
In order to ensure that the POA is legally valid, it is important to ensure that all the necessary steps are taken. It is also important to note that the POA must be executed in accordance with the laws of India.
Running a special power of attorney from abroad can be a complicated process, but with the right guidance, it can be done successfully. Following the steps outlined in this article will help ensure that the POA is legally valid and can be used to carry out the specified tasks.
