WHAT IS KHATA?
“Khata” is a revenue record document which displays the property details, name of the owner, location of the property, size/extent of the property, built-up area, carpet area, tax assessment, and (P.I.D) property identification number. The BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagar Palike) maintains the records of Khata in Bangalore and it serves as a record of payment of property taxes. The BBMP issues a unique PID number for every property located in its limits.
DO I NEED KHATA?
In order for the property to be transferred and for title transfer, the Khata of property must be furnished before the jurisdictional Sub-Registrar at the time of transfer. Without Khata of the property, the Sub-Registrar may not accept the registration of the Deed and transfer of title/ sale of property may not be possible.
There are several times that an apartment developer/ builder might have not paid property taxes and previous dues. It is essential that immediately after purchase of the property, Khata must be transferred to the new purchaser/s. We have seen several cases where dues have been accumulated by the land owner and builder on the property and now the new apartment purchaser has to bear the costs and penalty imposed by the BBMP.
To transfer the khata, the following list of documents will be required –
- Title Deed – Sale Deed, Gift Deed, Will
- Vendor’s Deed
- Upto date tax paid receipt
- Old Khata
- Electricity Bill
- Water Bill
- Gas Bill
- Copy of Aadhaar Card
- Encumbrance Certificate from the date of purchase till date
- Joint affidavit – in case of two owners
- In case of Apartment, apartment details will be required
- In case of Will, a self declaration Affidavit.
- In case of Will, Notarized Family Tree
WHAT IS E-KHATA?
- Khata is an digitized form of khata which is newly introduced in the State of Karnataka. All property owners must get an e-khata. The BBMP has issued strict instructions that properties without e-khata cannot be transferred. The additional feature of E-khata is the exact location of the property and the photo of the property.
