Survey Number mismatch between Patta and Sale Deed

Hi All,

I am new member to this forum. I purchased a land in sriperumbudur taluk in 2006 and got Patta in 2009 for the same land. In sale deed the survey no is mentioned as 224/1B, but in patta it is mentioned as 224/14.Other details , like my name and mesaurements were correct. Is this a problem ? Can I get this corrected ? Please tell me the procedure.

You may want to get it corrected by the revenue authorities. Just to be on the safer side.

You file an application to the concerned Revenue Authroity to rectify the mistake the property extract


If you have contact with your sellor, draft a rectification deed with the correct details and get it registered , very simple procedure involved.



Since this is a registerted document so it should be corrected by a rectification deed duly signed by parties and same has to be rgisterted.

It is better to get a rectification deed to avoid further problems.

dear sir, register a rectification deed where your sale registered.  they cary particulars in indexess also then only your transaction will be corrected. original executent of the sale deed or his successers are needed for this.



I have the same problem.. In my case i am planning to buy a House (in chennai)and in Patta the South and West boundarries are different than in all the Sale deed(s) (Previous docs).

Now i do not know which boundary is correct either of Patta or all the previous Sale Deeds. Where should i approach to know which one is correct.

Is it enough to correct the last sale deed (Current owner from whom i am planning to buy) according to the patta if patta boundary is correct?


Patta will not show any boundaries. Get a Map of your survey no.from the concerned Village administrative officer and measure the land/plot with the help of a qualified land Surveyor and get a sketch from him with the boundaries and measurements of the land/ plot mentioned and check the details with previous Sale deed , mainly check whether the pathway in the boundary portion is matching with your sketch. The owners of the land in boundaries may change but the pathway will always remain the same. If okay Then prepare the sale deed accordingly.
