  1. PA requires no Witnesses. It has to be Notarised on a stamp paper of Rs.100/- with the passport size photographs to be affixed. The said PA document should have the specimen signature of the person in whose favour the PA is issued with Photograph.
    No other formalities are necessary.


  2. I don’t know what you mean by “power of attorney dead for a bank a/c operation”.If the person who
    granted the power of attorney is dead,then the power of attorney is automatically invalid.The signatures of the witnesses are meaningless and have no value.Have a Nice Day.
