The Khata of property which we own is still in the name of my father who has died five years ago. At present the property is jointly owned by my mother, me and my sister as per the Will made by my father. Tax paid receipts is issued in the name of my father. Their property is in Bangalore. Please advise the procedure for transfer of Khata in our names.  Can the Khata be in any one of our names?

- by Kiran, Bangalore

You have to apply to the Jurisdictional City Corporation office for transfer of Khata.  The prescribed form has to be duly filled in, signed and submitted to the Corporation Office. In your case, the copy of the document evidencing the transfer of immovable property will also be submitted along with an application. The Khata can be made in joint names of all three persons or can be in any one of the names in which case other owners have to file their No Objection Affidavits. After lapse of the statutory period the Khata will be transferred in the name of the applicant.


Transfer of Khata attracts a transfer fee of two percent of stamp duty paid on the transfer document. But in your case, the transfer document being Will, will not attract any stamp duty and hence no charges are to be paid. After the transfer of Khata, tax receipts will be issued in your names.

Q:- I am purchasing a site from CMC limits and it is also a co-operative society site. The query is that the bank where I had applied for loan told me that this site will come under green belt and they cannot fund for this site. My query is for this site, the Katha certificate is there, recent tax paid receipts are there, encumbrance is there, GPA is there and almost the documents are all correct and one more, people have constructed houses next to this layout, and there is BDA Layout coming next to 0.5 km from this site and there are roads, lights, water, and there is no problem at all. I do not know why the bank is telling that this site will come under green belt. Please furnish all the details as to how this comes under green belt.
