Government has established Sub Registry Office in various parts of the country. These Sub Registry Office have specific local jurisdiction set by the government. A document should be presented for registration in the Sub Registry Office within which jurisdiction the whole or major portion of the property to which such document relates is situated. Document void when no portion of property transferred situates within jurisdiction of Sub Registrar. [Shefali Rani and others vs Makhan Chandra Das and others, 50 DLR (1998) 349].

If the major portion of such property is not situated within the jurisdiction of one Sub Registry Office, the document maybe presented for registration in any Sub Registry Office within which jurisdiction part of the property is situated.

Section 28:

Provided that where the major portion of such property is not situate within one sub-district the document shall be presented for registration in the office of the Sub-Registrar within whose sub-district any portion of such property is situate.

(b) a document the registration of which is secured by the inclusion of a non-existent, fictitious or insignificant portion or item shall not in any manner affect the rights of a person who was not a party thereto and acquired rights in the property without notice of the transaction to which such document relates.
