The Indian Registration Act recognises confirmation deeds. According to Section 17 of the Act, any deed confirming any interest in immovable property needs to be registered. The confirmation may be given either by acquiescence, by limitation, or by deeds. A confirmation deed attracts stamp duty. In case the main document is registered or to be registered, the corresponding confirmation deed also requires registration.
Registration charges and stamp duty are to be paid by the parties as per the laws of the state.
