A possession certificate is a legal document that serves as evidence of ownership or possession of a particular asset or property.
The possession certificate must be obtained from the local authority where the property is located. The possession certificate is valid for one year from the date of issue.
You can easily apply for your Land Possession Certificate from the Tahsildar Office (in rural areas) or Revenue Divisional Officer (for urban areas). All you must do is follow the below-mentioned steps:
Step 1: Visit the concerned Tahsildar Office (if your property is in a rural area) or Revenue Divisional Office (if your property is in an urban area) and obtain the form to get your Land Possession Certificate.
Step 2: Fill out your personal details and the details of your property in the form.
Step 3: Submit the form along with the requisite documents- income certificate, passport-size photos, Ration Card, Aadhaar Card, proof of ownership or property, etc. to the concerned officer.
Step 4: Once you have submitted the form and the required documents, you will get an acknowledgement along with an application number. You can track your application status using this application number.
Step 5: A technical officer will visit your property for inspection. The property will further be reviewed by the higher officials and the city planner. Once the review is complete, you can easily collect your possession certificate from the concerned office or you can also download it from the official e-district portal.
