Dear Mr. Surendran


Yes it is valid document to trace the title, but it is not only the document to verify the title other revenue documents which is referred in the RTC those documents needs to be verified.

RTC starts from 1966-67, prior to RTC we need verify the documents how he has acquired the property.

It is not a document of title [title deed] but can be used as document evidencing title. Please carry our a proper search with the revenue authorities and obtain "patta" and other mutation changes recorded in patta book. A non agtriculturist cannot purchase an agricultural land. Please utilise online "Sakala" service
