Who can use this Indian power of attorney?
Any company having business in India.
What is this power of attorney for?
It gives authority to the general manager of a company to transact business on its behalf, including making financial decisions and signing agreements on behalf of the company. The power of attorney is governed by Indian law.
What are the main issues for granting a power of attorney for a general manager?
First, the company needs to be satisfied that the general manager is an appropriate person to have the authority being given to him.
A power of attorney identifies the scope of the authority to make decisions relating to finance, property and other matters.
So you need to consider how much freedom your general manager will have to make his own decisions.
