A Power Of Attorney (POA) is an instrument through which authority is conferred on somebody else to legally act on their behalf. POA can be of two types — Special POA (SPOA) and General POA (GPOA). While SPOA is used for only for transferring specific right to the person on whom it is conferred, GPOA gives the one who is conferred to do whatever is necessary. This is the reason why registering a GPOA is compulsory. It is not necessary to register a SPOA. However, attestation may be required. We suggest that you contact your legal counsel for clarity.
