1. If the POA is revocable it may be be revoked at any time by simply giving  a legal notice or by the conduct of the person who has given it, whereas an irrevocable Power of Attorney cannot be revoked unless and until conditions expressed therein have been satisfied.

2. Furthermore, if the power of attorney is registered then you have to cancel it through a deed of cancellation/revocation & that too has to be registered. In case the power of attorney is not registered then it can be cancelled by a legal notice to to the person/authority for whom this POA deed was made along with a copy to the person in whose favor this was given.

If the power of attorney deed is a registered document then you may have to execute a cancellation/revocation deed duly registered by both the principal and the agent signing the revocation deed before the registrar.

If the POA deed is an unregistered document then a notice communicating the decision of cancelling/revoking the power deed to be sent to the power agent by registered post with acknowledgment card enclosed to it and a newspaper publication to this effect should be published in a local newspaper for the information of general public who might have an interest to deal with the power agent.

Yes the registered cancellation deed can be done in a single day which it has been fixed in agreement with the power agent.
