Registration of General Power of Attorney is now open in Delhi
It is important to note that the Delhi Government had stopped the transfer of properties through General Power of Attorney, in view of the judgement given by the Hon'ble Supreme Court in the case of Suraj Lamp & Industries Pvt. Ltd. v. State of Haryana, AIR 2009 SC 3077. Consequently, the Revenue Department of Delhi issued a circular on 26th April, 2012 that instructed all the registrars and sub-registrars not to register any GPA, will or agreement to sell, through which any immoveable was being transferred .
However, later on 5th May, 2013, the Delhi high court in the matter of Pace Developers and Promoters Pvt. Ltd. Vs. Govt. of NCT, struck down the controversial circular of the Delhi State government that restricted transfer of property through a general power of attorney. The judgement said that as long as the transaction is genuine, the same will have to be registered by the sub-registrar.
Subsequently, the Revenue Department of Delhi Government issued a fresh circular on 22nd July, 2013 wherein it stated that transfer of property through general power of attorney and special power of attorney (SPA) by any registered property owner will be allowed in favour of their spouse, son, daughter, brother, sister or any other relative or person of his trust to manage his property or empowering him to execute any further deed of transfer including conveyance, sale and gift deed.
It directed all the Sub Registrars in Delhi to once again allow the registration of such General Power of Attorneys. This has provided some relief to the general public as they can now transfer their leasehold properties of DDA, L&DO, MCD through registered GPA.
