A. Dear Client,

To ensure legal enforceability for all purposes, a Power of Attorney (POA) should be registered under the Registration Act, 1908. This registration formalizes the document and empowers the appointed executor or principal to authorize another person to act on their behalf or carry out specific tasks.
