You will require Registered POA. That will complete your transaction as a valid and legal part of registration process. Other alternative may not suffice requirements as per compliance of sub registrar.

What is difficulty about notarized POA. It is necessary to Register POA in sub Registrar Office.
Registered Power of Attorney is better than notarized power of attorney.
As per section 17 of Indian registration act compulsory registration of power of attorney is not required. But to present a document before a registrar under section 32 of registration act by any person other then executor, registered power of attorney is required as per section 33.
