My son wants to purchase a plot near Horamavu, but on verification of CDP map, the plot was found to be in green belt area. I have been advised that non-agriculturist is not eligible to purchase agricultural lands. The present owner assures me that the problem can be solved by registering the land in Sq, fts. Instead of guntas. My father is a farmer. Many such transactions have taken place. Can my son purchase this land and construct a house. There are also chances of land being notified by BDA, in that case what are the consequences?

At the outset, if you are sure of that the lands will be notified by BDA, better to advise your son not to purchase and construct the may be compensated, but it is time consuming process. Since your father is an agriculturist and since your son is from agriculturist family he may purchase the plot and get it registered in guntas itself provided if he qualifies under eligible income category. Any person, family, joint family who are agriculturists and the assured annual income from non-agricultural sources is less than two lakhs may purchase agricultural lands. To arrive at this benchmark of two lakhs, the non- agricultural income of all the family members, joint family member will be considered. The average assured non-agricultural income of the person, family, joint family for the immediate previous five years should be less than two lakhs. If your son fits into this rule, he may purchase the plot.

QUESTIONS

Q:- I have purchased a site at Kengeri measuring 30’ x 40’.  But the sale deed which was registered mentions the area as 29’ X 40’.  The consideration was paid for 30’ X 40’.  I did not consider it as major mistake as the entire site area of 30’ X 40’ was fenced and the site was in my possession from the date of purchase that is 1990.  I have constructed a house also. However my neighbor is claiming that 1’ X 40’ area belongs to him. I seek your kind advice as to the course of action to be taken. 

Q:-
I would like to state that I bought a site in BSK VI stage. I am desired to know more about the area and the progress that is being taken place. By what time the area will be fully developed to proceed on constructing a house.
What are the documents other than sale deed,  Khata, tax paid receipt required to avail loan from the banks? Is encumbrance certificate to be made if the allotment is made by the BDA directly?


Q:- My father owns a property in Bangalore. It consists of ground floor only, we are two brothers and one sister. Property in question stands in the name of my father, which is self acquired. I have been granted a home loan to construct the first floor; my sister and brother have given no objection letter to construct the first floor. Later on my brother wants to construct the second floor. But my father has refused to give no objection letter or even cede our proportionate share in the property. Please advice how to overcome this problem.
