In many places, a person gets his copy on the same date. Pending of petitions for a long time is a matter of past. People are now free from delay and harassment.

Raiyat & Khatian

  A person owning parcel(s) of land in a mauza is a Raiyat and details of his or her ownership, use(s) of land, revenue payable, etc. constitute his or her record of right or KHATIAN.

    The number of Raiyats in the State is over 40 million and so is the number of Record of Rights. These maps and records are Public Documents.

    Maps and records are required to update due to change of ownership or use of land. This is done by drawing Mutation & Conversion proceedings under appropriate provisions of law. These proceedings also constitute Public Documents.
Certified copies of and Information regarding these documents can be obtained after paying requisite charges.
