Laws Related to Registration of Property Transacti...

In the case of immovable property, mandatory registration of property purchase and sale documents are essential ensuring proof of ownership, fraud prevention and assurance of title.Under The Indian Registration Act, there is legislation for property registration in India known as the law of registration of documents that makes it a mandatory requirement to register key documents for the recording of evidence, fraud prevention and assured title transfer. Property Documents Necessitating Mandatory RegistrationRegistration of property or property registration in India in accordance with Section 17 of the Registration Act, 1908, is mandatory in case of transactions involving immovable property sale for an amount in excess of Rs. 100. What this essentially means is that all immovable property sale transactions must be registered since a mere Rs. 100 cannot possibly be the purchase price of immovable property. Furthermore, a gift of immovable property, as well as lease for a period in excess of 12 months are essentially transactions that require registration.In special circumstances, if any of the parties to the transaction is unable to be physically present at the sub registrar's office, then, in that case, any of its officers may be deputed by the sub-registrar for acceptance of the registration documents at the buyer’s residence. Included in ‘immovable property’ are land, buildings and any attached rights to these classes of properties.Procedure and Documents Required for Registration of PropertyAs registration of property documents are mandatory it's worth knowing what the procedure for registration of property entails. Firstly, the documents have to be submitted to the office of the Sub-Registrar of Assurances within the jurisdiction of the location of the transferrable property by the property lawyer. Thereafter both the authorized signatories of the seller and the purchaser, need to be physically present with their proof of identities including Aadhar card, PAN card or any other government authority issued ID proof along with two witnesses, for the purpose of registration of property documents.All designated authorized signatories ought to produce the power of authority if in case they are representing someone on their behalf.  If however, in the case of a company the company is one of the parties in the agreement, the company representatives ought to have all necessary documents with them including the letter of authority, and along with that a copy of the company board’s resolution granting authority to execute the registration. The designated authorized signatory ought to show the property card to the sub-registrar and in addition to that all original documents and proof that stamp duty has indeed been paid. Prior to registration of property documents, verification would be done by the sub-registrar as to whether or not the required stamp duty for the property has been paid, according to the ready reckoner for stamp duty.  Any deficit in the stamp duty would result in the registrar declining registration of property documents. Time Limit and Fees to be Paid for Property Registration ?All documents that need mandatory registration ought to be presented by the property lawyer no later than 4 months from their execution date along with the prescribed fee. In the case of expiry of the time limit, an application can be made to the sub-registrar to condone the delay, and that with an extension of time of another 4 months the registration of property documents would be submitted to the sub-registrar within that time. The registrar may consent to register documents that missed the registration deadline for a hefty fine of up to ten times the actual registration fee. For the registration of property documents, the fee is 1% of the property’s value, capped at Rs 30,000.Previously, presenting registration of property documents for registration of property would result in returning the documents to the sender after six months. Nonetheless, with the sub registrar's offices being computerized, the documents with the registration number and proof that the registrar has indeed completed the registration are first scanned and then returned to the sender on the very same day.Consequences of Non-registration of PropertyIf the property purchase agreement remains unregistered then it could be very risky for the buyer of the property. Since it’s mandatory for all documents to be registered but if they remain unregistered then those unregistered documents cannot be presented as proof in a lawsuit.

How to File for Mutual Consent Divorce: Step by St...

According to the Indian Legal system, the divorce procedure or process of divorce basically starts as soon as the divorce petition is filed. The way the divorce procedure in India in its entirety works is with the initiation of the filing of the divorce petition by either party to the divorce suit and serving of notice to the other party.If the relationship between the parties has hit rock bottom and both the spouses have jointly made a decision to split according to the law of the land, then either party can initiate ‘mutual divorce’ according to the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. Either party can file for divorce even if any one of the parties is unwilling to file for divorce and is widely known as ‘contested divorce’. How to file for Mutual Consent Divorce?Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 is related to the provision of mutual consent divorce and there is a preset divorce procedure to file for a mutual consent divorce mentioned in section 13B. To file a mutual consent divorce petition there is certain steps/procedure to follow as well as requirements that need to be fulfilled and they are as follows: 1. Filing a petition First and foremost, both spouses have to seek a decree of divorce by presenting a joint petition for dissolution of marriage to the family court through a divorce lawyer based on the fact that they have been living apart for a period of a year or more. They may also disclose that living together as couples did not come to fruition and therefore there has been a mutual agreement for dissolution of the marriage. Both parties would have to sign the petition.  2. Appearing before Court and scrutiny of the petition Both parties would have to be present at the family court with their respective divorce lawyer after the petition has been filed. What the court would do is analyze the petition with all the filed documents. The court may even try and reconcile any differences or patch up the strained relations among the parties, although if it's irreconcilable then the divorce case would continue until it reaches its logical conclusion.  3. Order for the recording of statements on oath After the court analyses the petition and it's satisfactory the courts may order the statement of the parties to be recorded under oath. 4. Order on First Motion and elapsing of a period of 6 months prior to Second Motion With the recording of the statements, the court passes an order on the first motion. After this step, a 6 months’ time period is allotted to both parties to divorce prior to filing the second motion. The maximum time period for the filing of a second motion is 18 months from the date the divorce petition is presented in the family court by a divorce lawyer, the only exception being withdrawing the petition unless the petition is withdrawn meanwhile.5. Second Motion and Final Hearing of the MatterWith the decision made to forge ahead with the divorce procedure and be present for the second motion, they can certainly do so and get on with the final hearing. Involved in this step are parties being physically present and statements recorded at the Family Court. Recently, though, the Supreme Court has upheld that the 6 months’ time period that the parties get can be waived off if the courts so wish to. Therefore, in instances of parties genuinely settling their marital issues including alimony, custody of the child or any other pending issues among the parties the cooling-off period of 6 months can be waived off if the courts decide that the waiting period of 6 months would only make them more miserable. Within the period of 18 months, if the second motion is not made, the court will not order any decree of divorce. It's an established law that consent can be withdrawn by either party at will prior to the courts ordering of the decree.6. Decree of Divorce?Both parties in a mutual consent divorce would have to be consenting to get a divorce fair and square without any bone of contention between the parties about alimony, child custody, maintenance, property, and so on. Therefore, a comprehensive agreement among the parties is required for the marriage to be dissolved. After the trial if the court is convinced about the truthfulness of what has been alleged in the petition and that there isn’t an iota of the probability of reconciliation or cohabitation, the courts would then pass a decree of divorce making the divorce final and declaring the marriage as dissolved according to the facts and situations of the case. You may have been unsure as to how to file for divorce or what the exact steps are. However, after reading this blog you would be more informed of the divorce procedure. So, go ahead and retain a good divorce lawyer to get a divorce.

  • What is Sale of Goods Law?
  • What Laws are Applicable on Sale of Goods Law?
  • What is the Importance of Sale of Goods Act?

What is Sale of Goods Law?


Sale of Goods Laws are a kind of sub-branch of the Contract laws. These laws aim at facilitating the event of selling of goods in accordance with the relevant legal principles and ideas in mind. Barring the state of Jammu & Kashmir, this law is actionable to the whole of India.

Laws applicable on Sale of Goods Law-


  • Indian Sale of Goods Act 1930
  • Indian Contracts Act, 1872

What Indian Sale of Goods Act, 1930 says-


  • There must be a buyer & a seller w.r.t the contract which should be related to goods, i.e., movable property for this act to be applicable
  • All the essential elements of a Contract as per the Indian Contract Act are applicable here as well.
  • As per Section 2(7) of the Act, ‘goods’ refers to every kind of movable property apart from actionable claims & money (stocks & shares inclusive).

    Rights of Unpaid Seller-

    • Right of Lien – legal right of retaining possession of goods until the due consideration is received [Section 46(1)(a) and Section 47 to 49]
    • Right of Stoppage in Transit – seller has the right of preventing the transit of goods and reacquire possession until he receives the due consideration [Section 50 to 52]. He can do so even when the buyer becomes insolvent prior to the expiry of the initial credit period granted.
    • Right to Re-Sale – failure of providing the due consideration on part of the buyer within a reasonable time allows the unpaid seller for re-sale of his goods if the concerned goods are of a perishable nature, or if seller provided notice to buyer about his intention to resale despite which the buyer did not pay the due consideration, or if the seller expressly reserved his Resale rights.
    • The seller can also opt for resale if he had exercised his Right of Lien/ his right of stopping the transit but has to provide a notice to the buyer about the intention of re-sale to which he must respond to in a reasonable time. The seller may, on failure of the original buyer paying the due consideration, opt for re-sale and sue the original buyer for damages which may have occurred due to the breach of contract on the buyer’s part. [Section 54(2) of the Act]
    • Right of Withholding Delivery – when goods haven’t passed to the buyer and are still in seller’s possession he may retain the possession till he is paid. It is similar to the concept of ‘Right to Lien’.
    • Suit for Price- As per Section 55 of the Act, unpaid seller has the right to sue the buyer for price. As per Section 56 of the Act, the seller may sue for damages regarding ‘non-acceptance’ when the buyer wrongfully neglects or refuses to pay for the goods.

    Rights of Buyer-

    • As per Sections 31 & 32, he has the claim to the delivery of goods as per the agreed terms. He can reject goods if they don’t match the description provided for as per the agreement.
    • As per Section 41, buyer has the right of enjoying reasonable opportunity of the inspection of concerned goods.
    • As per Section 57, the buyer can sue the seller in the event of the seller refusing or wrongfully neglecting the delivery of goods.

Some important facts and cases about and under Adoption law


Personal belief and faith cannot dictate the adoption
In the case of Shabnam Hashmi Vs. Union of India and Others, 2005, the Supreme Court has decreed that prospective parents irrespective of their religious background are free to adopt children after the prescribed procedure. The court in its order said that 'personal beliefs and faiths, though must be honoured, cannot dictate the operation of the provisions of an enabling statute.

Interest of the Child comes first
Noting that the interests should be kept “first and foremost” during adoption, the Supreme Court on Monday directed the Centre and the States to frame regulations under the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act, 2015 to implement the new guidelines for in-country and inter-country adoption to make the process transparent, friendly and fool-proof.
“Whether it is in-country or inter-country adoption, the interest of the child should be supreme. There should be no compromise whatsoever,” Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur, who headed a three-judge Bench, told the Centre.
