I have purchased a BDA property in bangalore and got it registered in my name in 2001.
Recently we noticed a mistake in the sale deed in theschedule of the property in respect of the dimensions.
The total dimensions mentionedin the deed is correct (1200 Sq feet) but the size from east to west and north to south is wrong. instead of east to west 40 feet it is mentioned as 30 feet and instead of north to south 30 feet it is mentioned as 40 feet.
I was able to trace the owner and asked him for the rectification deed to be done.
After a few postponement now he asks that 5 % of the current market rate he wants as a favor of rectification deed. The original sale deed which was executed by BDA in name of original owner has the correct dimensions. even though the site number is ok and the khata is in my name . I wanted this rectification deed to be done but after 8 years the property value has appreciated a lot and paying 5% will be a lot of money. Request the members to provide suggestions. can i file a criminal case against him or shall i keep quiet. can i face any problems later . I don't want to pay the greedy owner so much of money. please suggest
