Is it necessary to Notarized Rent Agreements in India?

No, It's not mandatory to notarize a rent agreement 

A rent agreement without notary is accepted for jurisdiction purposes. It is important that a rent agreement should be executed on non-judicial stamp paper or non-judicial e-stamp paper.

However, notarizing your rent agreement is a precautionary measure to protect your rental deal. A notary lawyer reads and makes sure that parties understand the terms & conditions mentioned in rent agreement, verify identification proofs, and witness the signature of parties. It means that rent agreement is not forged and (guaranteed) attested by notary public.

A notarized rental agreement is widely accepted for jurisdiction and as local address proof for tenant. Ex: applying gas connection, bank account opening, tax claim, etc…

It is not mandatory to notarize a Rent Agreement. As long as it is printed on Stamp paper and is signed by both parties and by two witnesses, it is considered binding. However, if you wish to notarize it, you may do so.
