Give to your local advocate on your purchasing property for verification on the legality of the flat.

whatever may be the authority that has granted for the conversion of agricultural to non agricultural lands they need to possesss those link documents which you must check before buying a flat. There is nothing wrong in buying property under the gram Panchayat. but you need to trace the ownership of the land the building permission compliance with the gram panchayath of the construction permission of the builder from the land owner etc.

Lay out plan must be approved by Town planning. Section 18 of the Maharastra rules do not allow panchayay t to approve plan. Please meet some architect, he will be able to advise you.

Just cross checking and verifying everything on your own will not be an answer to all your queries.  You may consult a local advocate and get all the issues clarified besides a proper opinion on the property based on the documents.

It is more advisable meet architect, as they are expert and deals with town planning regularly.
