Q.1182  Assign Power of Attorney from NRI to someone else . . .

Question:  Hello I hope this email finds you well - I have recently reviewed your response for PoA (http://nriinformation.com/faq2/question113.htm) and have a few follow up questions. My father's family are looking to sell some land in India and it is my cousin who is dealing with the matter. He has provided the appropriate form for us to complete referring to the specific plot of land and the expectation is for me, my wife, my brother, his wife and my Father to provide PoA to him. Question 1) To make life easier for us all, I have suggested that My Father, my wife, my borhter and his wife give me PoA to act on their behalf in this matter and in turn I will then give PoA for my cousin to act on my behalf (this will ensure that he will only ever need to follow up with me should he need to) - is this is a suitable approach or should we all sign a document giving my cousin PoA? Question 2) This depends on your answer to question 1. My brother and his wife live in London and I live in Leeds making it very challenging to arrange time for all of us to go to the Embassy - is it possible for my brother and his wife to visit the Embassy in London and acquire a stamp of approval for the PoA and my wife and Father to visit the Birmingham Embassy to acquire a stamp of approval on a separate PoA? Question 3) Whilst I have an OCI and PAN card, am I still ok just to use my passport as ID for the PoA (I ask as these items are currently packed in storage as I have moved house)? Kind Regards Answer:   My understanding is that the person assigned the power of attorney cannot legally assign the POA to another person. Check Validity of NRI issued Power of Attorney Ensure that the POA document is valid and without errors when buying property based on a Power of Attorney document.
