A BBMP Khata Certificate is required for two major purposes-for registration of a new
property and for transfer of any property. The Khata certificate can be obtained from the Assistant Revenue Officer (ARO, of the respective area) of the BBMP. There is nominal fee for the form. Under Section 114 of the Karnataka Municipality Council Act, this certificate must necessarily be in possession of any property owner.
A Khata certificate is obtained for any new registration after paying the property tax. The issued certificate states that a particular property No. ‘N’ stands in the name of person X. This certificate is required to apply for a water connection, electricity connection, trade license, and building license for the property. The Khata certificate is handed over only to the owner of the property or to his family members. No one else can obtain the certificate on the owner’s behalf. It takes a maximum of one week to obtain the certificate. The certificate can also be obtained instantly from certain citizen service centers.
When a property transaction occurs, both the seller and the buyer must inform the BBMP within 3 months of the transaction. In case of death of either party, the BBMP must be informed within 1 year.
This ids document states the name of the property owner, the area in which the property located and the property number. To obtain this certificate, the property owner or the khatedar (in whose name the Khata has been registered) will have to submit a written request to the concerned BBMP office.
