Index 2 is a very important document whenever any transaction regarding purchase and sale of any property or real estate takes place in Maharashtra/Index 2. It contains all the important details about the transaction in brief.
Many a times, mistakes are made in this document while entering the data before registration or during registration (while entering data). This can be due to the error/mistake by the person entering the data in the registration office.
The most common mistake is the date of execution and date of registration. The execution date is the date on which the document is signed.
The date of Registration is the date on which the parties visit the registration office and register the document, get their photographs taken and thumb imprints taken.
Often, even the people at the registration office are unaware of what is to be done once such a mistake has been detected. Even advocates are sometimes unaware of what is to be done. Most think that a rectification deed (new document) will have to be made specifying the mistake made in the index 2 and get it registered (just like the previous document). For this the parties will have to visit the registration office once again.
But this need not be done.
All that has to be done is to file a simple application with the registration office (where the document was registered) specifying the mistake made while entering data in the Index 2. The format of the same in given below.
