Registration of Property in India from abroad
Dear Sir/ Madam, We are seeking your advise on a flat related matter. I have tried to articulate everything below. If you have any question please email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org Background: I have booked a flat with a reputed builder in Rajarhat, near Kolkata, WB. Flat comes under Rajarhat gram panchayet. Its a big complex with 300+ flats. We have done full payment, part of which are bank loan. Now the flat is complete and the promoter wants to hand it over. They are asking for registration. Issue: Currently I am residing in London and do not have any plans to come in near future. When I told this to builder, they sent me a form (UNDER RULE 44A OF I.R ACT 1908) where I need to give photo, signature and 10 fingerprint and need to send them back. He said, that they will do the commission registration and I don’t have to be present for that. Only that form will be sufficient. I have big doubt on this, because I have heard these days they take bio-metric, photo, digital signature etc. in the registration office. So I did not courier the form to them. Please advise me on : - Should I follow what the builder is suggesting? Is it a general practice followed by builders for out of station customers?
