Can US person send scanned copy of PoA to India or fax it?

I am purchasing a car in Pune. I am staying in a rented flat whose owner is in US and I have only a notarized rent agreement which does not work. I am asking him to give POA to his wife who is in India so that we can make a registered rent agreement. If my landlord makes the POA in his wife’s name, can he send me the scanned copy or fax it? Is it accepted at sub-registrar office to make registered rent agreement?

Thanks

As far as i know, registrar office will only accept registered POA.
And to register a POA, your landlord would have to do lot of things as mentioned above.

Also, scanned or fax copies of POA do not work. It should be an original copy.
