I own a piece of land at chennai sub-urban area.
I applied for patta transfer on my name on 10/10/2011 through VAO office. He told me to collect the patta from Ambattur Taluk office after 4 weeks. I visited the Ambattur taluk office after four weeks. I was told that my application was not reached Taluk office from VAO. Again, I checked with VAO office; they told me that file has been already sent to Taluk office. I followed-up for months but no patta. They told me to apply fresh.
2nd time, I applied for patta transfer on 08/07/2013, told me to collect the patta from Taluk office after 4 weeks.
I paid Rs. 1800/- in favour of Tahsildar as advised. I was in hope that this time I will get the patta. But, the same old story, come after 2 weeks, Surveyor is on leave, we will call you, and so on. I was tracking it for months. Then, I requested my application status through a query letter. Then, Tahsildar called me over phone and told me to ignore the application and advised me to apply through online system. He assured me Computer patta within 3 weeks.
3rd Time I applied online. They asked me to re-scan the documents due to wrong block number on appln provided by them.
4th application thro’ online (No. 2017/0154/01/000670) on 05/09/2017. On every visit, told me wait for their phone call. No call from anyone. As per online status, the application got rejected on 19/03/2018 (after 6-1/2 months) with reason boundary variations. I asked for a copy of variations and reason for more than 6 months, no proper reply.
It is clear, they are expecting the bribe. One agent told me that Rs 30-40k to be paid for patta transfer.
What are the legal option?
Can I write grievance to CM cell?
Can i request a copy of observed variations in boundary thro RTI?
What can be done avoid bribe?
Your valid suggstion please.
