When I applied for the patta for the land, the bank requested it, and the measurement on one side of the patta is 150 square feet smaller than what is mentioned in the selling document.


Minor inconsistencies in the patta’s measurements and land extents as described in the document are typical.

When approving building plans, the authorities take into account the smallest of the extents specified in the document, the patta, or the actual site condition.

Fill out an application to have a surveyor from the tasildar office measure and verify your property according to the sale deed and the tasildar office’s map sketch.

After you’ve obtained the certified copy, consider how you may improve it.ÊÊ

Submit an application to the tahsildar to amend the correctness measurement in the Patta, together with the necessary documentation, and include your neighbour asÊÊparty to the proceedings and settle the matter in tahsildar office.

To correct the mistake in land area, society must sign a rectification deed in favour of the allottee or his rightful successors.

If you want to sell your land, there will be no issues because the stamp duty will be based on the area specified in the sale document.

The patta is not the same as the title document’s subject.

Patta, on the other hand, is not a title document.

If you discover a mismatch between the actual measurement and the measurement stated in the title document after being measured by a government surveyor, you must repair the title document according to legislation.Ê
