In general being a real owner of the propery there should be some record/evidence in a municipal record.

In future if want to sell your house you may get difficulties bcoz mutation is not in your name, it denots you are not a real owner as per recent laws and also depends on the bye-laws of your municipalty.

At present time transfer cost is Rs 22000/- in future obviously it will increase why this delay.

Dear Mr. Pandey:

In Municipal records of New Delhi, property tax challan comes in the name and is paid by the widow of a deceased who owned the residential property but died intestate and the widow is not the registered owner of the property. Does it tantamount to that the mutation in the municipal records has been made in the name of the widow?
