  • A Patta is registered by the Tehsildar of that particular area.
  • To get your name registered under the Patta, you have to make an application to the Tehsildar, requesting him to get your name registered.
  • He could after examining the application either accept the application or will reject it.
  • He could either ask you to show the property and would investigate the property by himself or may ask you to provide certain documents which could prove that the new owner of that property is you and then match those with the ones which are available in the revenue office and then change it.

The prescribed procedure hardly happens. The Tehsildar rarely makes any attempt to make your name registered.

Instead, you have to make an effort yourself to repeatedly ask him to do your work. He may also ask to survey the property to ensure its ownership, and it is your responsibility to make him do so if he has asked for it.

It appears that State Govt is contemplating such a facility and it may take 5 to 6 months to publish that policy. The Govt may have prescribed such a lock-in facility.  First file RTI Application seeking information from State Public Information Officer as follows:

Information solicited:

1. Please provide a copy of orders/notifications/circulars/directives for selling 'B'Patta land through registration.

If registration is not possible, it is not proper to acquire such property explore alternates.

A Patta is a crucial document that refers to the ownership of a particular property. It indicates the person who has the rights to the property. Therefore, it is also known as the “Record Of Rights (ROR)”. The person who has his name registered in the Patta is considered to be the owner to be that property.

  • Patta is a legal document that has been issued by the appropriate government.
  • Patta establishes the ownership of a person over a particular piece of land.
  • The name on a Patta Land is considered to be sufficient documentation to prove that the land belongs to the named person and that the owner of that property.

If you are to purchase a B-form Patta land, make sure the title is clean by applying to Tehsildar for information. As the registration process is carried out by Tehsildar. If you are satisfied with the title of the land after purchasing land should be registered again through Tehsildar. By of following instructions provided by Tehsildar.
