You need to give power of attorney to your brother to do the necessary paperwork on your behalf.

"Most Preferably" the signatures pertaining  to sale transaction should be done by you.

That means, the power given to your brother shall be restricted to submitting and  / or receiving the documents to and / or from the concerned authority.

Good Luck

Yes it is possible and proper to nominate your brother as a Special  or General Power of Attorney for the purpose of purchasing the property in which you are interested. You have to execute a Power of Attorney for getting registered the title deed in your favour through your brother. There is procedure to appear before concerned registering authority through a nominee. You have sign on a proforma of presenter / claimant.

Yes a registered power of attorney can purchase a property on behalf of the principal and if the attorney is close relative like a brother then it is more proper.

In other words you can proceed to register a GPA in the name of your brother so when you leae he can buy this property on your behalf.

You can execute a registered POA deed in favor of your brother only for the purpose of purchase and related formalities  for the purchase of the property, so that the power of attorney deed shall become infructuous after the purpose of purchase is solved.

  1. As per the information mentioned in the present query, makes it clear that you wish to appoint your brother to execute the property transaction on your behalf.
  2. Yes, you can very well do that but in accordance of the Hon’ble SC recent judgments in which it has been declared property transaction as invalid if executed via POA or GPA except to one exception in it.
  3. It says that the POA should be executed in the favour of close relative or blood relative which is the applicable in your case, but do remember to draft the POA in terms of the SC order mentioning about it in the POA.
