The registration of the sale agreement was made mandatory in the buyer`s interest. Since the agreement is signed before the Registrar, it guarantees that the buyer is not obliged to sign a specific clause. In addition, the registration of the deed allows it to be presented in court as proof of the contract, thus preventing the promoter from denying its existence and thereby bringing it to justice. Registration also generates revenue for the government in the form of stamp duty. This question arises because the registration of documents is usually made to guarantee a clear right and ownership of the property to the buyer. A sale agreement as such does not constitute a clear property of the property. In the case of Durgawati Devi/Union of India2, the Supreme Court ruled that the execution of the sale contract did not entrust ownership of the property and that the property would be transferred only by transportation authorization. It is different from a deed of sale which is a legal document that proves the absolute transfer of ownership of a property from the seller to the buyer, because a sale agreement does not create any right or interest in the property for the proposed buyer. The title of a property can only be transferred by a deed of sale duly stamped and registered.

By analyzing the provision, we can understand that the document listed in it is an agreement for sale. Moreover, the fact that the agreement on the sale as such falls within the category of Article 17, paragraph 2, of the Registration Act as a non-binding document. A sale agreement, also known as a sales contract, is an agreement to sell a property in the future in accordance with certain conditions provided by the agreement. Section 54 of Property Law, 1882, defines it as: „A contract for the sale of real estate is a contract which is a sale of that property on terms regulated between the parties.“ Overall, the law may be intended to protect the interests of buyers, but only in cases of ambiguity resulting from unregistered sales contracts, to dominate as much in favour of the buyer. With an increase in cases of fraud in the real estate market, it is advisable to pay a little higher fees for all buyers and get the sales agreement registered, instead of saving on registration fees just to lose the total advance due to fraud.
