**AUTHENTICATION OF POWER OF ATTORNEY** A power of attorney need not be attested. However, it would be advisable to execute the power of attorney before and have it authenticated by a Notary Public or any Court Judge/Magistrate, Indian Consul or Vice- Consul or representatives of the Central Government. If a power of attorney is so authenticated courts shall presume the execution of the power of attorney (Section 85 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872). Under Section 85 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, the Court shall presume that every document purporting to be a power of attorney, and to have been executed before and authenticated by a Notary Public or any Court, Judge, Magistrate, Indian Consul or Vice-Consul or representative of the Central Government, was so executed and authenticated. Under Section 57(6) and (7) of that Act, the seals of Notary Public are taken judicial notice of. Under Section 32(c) of the Indian Registration Act, 1908, a power of attorney can be granted to an agent to present a document for registration; but, under Section 33(1) of that Act, only certain powers of attorney are recognised. But if a power of attorney gives authority to present documents for registration under Section 32 of the Registration Act, 1908 it must be executed before and authenticated by the Registrar or Sub-Registrar within whose District or Sub-District the principal resides or where the Registration Act is not in force, before any Magistrate or if it is executed outside India, before a Notary Public, or any Court, Judge, Magistrate, Indian Consul or Vice-Consul or representative of the Central Government (Section 33 of the Registration Act, 1908). But a power of attorney empowering an agent to execute a deed conveying the property in an immovable property and get the deed registered thereby perfecting the transaction of conveyance, need not be executed before the Officer appointed to authenticate and register documents in as much as when the agent executes the document in the name of the principal, he is the executant thereof and as such can himself present the document for registration.
