This is your self acuqired property and not a property allotted by government under any welfare scheme.

Hence there is no restrictions to sell this property to any person including a general category person also

Dear Yogender Singh,

Thank you for your query! I am Aadil and I will try to answer your question.

The short answer for your question is YES. You may sell the property to an individual of any caste  and you do not have to disclose your caste to the buyer.


A sale deed is a legal document that is drafted by a legal draftsman for the purpose of purchase or sale of an immovable property. There are certain essentials that must be mentioned in the sale deed without which it is incomplete and holds no legal value. 

They are as follows:

  • Name of the deed

  • Parties to the sale deed

  • Descripttion of the property

  • Agreement for sale

  • Sale consideration clause

  • Advance payment 

  • Mode of payment, etc.

Here, the only clause that concerns itself with information about the seller is the ‘Parties to the sale deed’. This clause covers the following aspects:

  • The name of the parties

  • Their age

  • Their addresses

  • The competency of the parties to enter into this sale/purchase

  • That the parties sign the deed with bona-fide intention.

Hence, nowhere is it mentioned that the caste of the buyer or seller must be disclosed to the other party. In fact, the caste of the parties hold no value in the transaction.


As long as you have rightfully purchased the land and were not allotted the said land by the government, where you would not have the ownership rights, you may sell the property to any individual you choose.

I hope this helps. Thank you for your time and patience!
