A "power of attorney" is a legal instrument whereby one person gives another person the authority to act on his or her behalf as his legal representative and to make binding legal and financial decisions on his behalf. In India this form is also sometimes known as a Indian Vakalatnama.

The lack of properly drafted and executed power of attorney can lead to a lot of complications when an individual is incapacitated due to severe illness or injury rendering him/her unable to make decisions or manage financial and medical affairs. It also often happens that, due to ignorance of law, people fail to make a proper power of attorney. Hence it must be remembered that it is preferable that one should make a power of attorney to avoid the inconvenience and expense of legal proceedings. It must be done while the principal is competent, alert and aware of the consequences of his/her decision.

This General Power Attorney is a comprehensive one which pertains to matters of immovable properties, business, and general affairs. You will be able to select any powers that you wish to grant from a large selection of clauses.

Description and Instructions
General Power of Attorney
(India)


A "power of attorney" is a legal instrument whereby one person gives another person the authority to act on his or her behalf as his legal representative and to make binding legal and financial decisions on his behalf.

It must be noted here that a person need not be a lawyer to hold a Power of Attorney as an agent for someone else.

The power of attorney can grant considerable power to a third party to act on your behalf. Therefore, before you sign your name to legal contracts, you should give careful consideration to the person to whom you choose to grant those powers, and whether any limits should be imposed in the time the power of attorney will last or in its scope.

Granting a Power of Attorney is a legal process that involves the drafting of a document which assigns to another person the power to act as your legal representative.

The lack of a properly drafted and executed power of attorney can lead to a lot of complications when an individual is incapacitated due to severe illness or injury rendering him/her unable to make decisions or manage financial and medical affairs.

It also often happens that, due to ignorance of law, people fail to make a proper power of attorney. Hence it must be remembered that it is preferable that one should make a power of attorney to avoid the inconvenience and expense of legal proceedings. It must be done while the principal is competent, alert and aware of the consequences of his/her decision.
POINTS TO REMEMBER

    The general rule of a power of attorney is that it should be strictly construed.
    An agent cannot by his acts bind the principal to a larger extent than he is empowered to do under the power of attorney.
    Fraud by the power agent does not bind the principal. He cannot be sued or otherwise held responsible for fraud by the agent.
    

If the power does not authorize the agent to carry on a business except with limitations, any act done by him in excess of such power will not bind the principal. For example power to dispose of property does not confer a power to mortgage the property.
REGISTRATION OF POWER-OF-ATTORNEY

    Registration of power of attorney is only optional and not compulsory.
    In India, where the Registration Act, 1908, is in force, the power of attorney should be authenticated by a Sub Registrar only (whenever a person signs the document and his attorney presents/ admits execution).
    Foreign power of attorney should be stamped by the Collector after its receipt in India within prescribed time of 3 months
    Power of attorney should be attested by two or more adult independent witnesses who are of sound mind.  If a power of attorney is in respect of an immovable property of value more than Rs. 100 it must be registered.

I had no trouble finding exactly what I needed, I printed it and was ready to go in minutes. The expense was minimal compared to going to an office supply store let alone an attorney. I actually went back and purchased another form I needed. I will use this anytime I need another item.
