SITE/HOME BUYERS BEWARE: HAND-WRITTEN KHATAS ARE NOW ILLEGAL IN GRAM PANCHAYAT LIMITS – E KATHA IN FORM NO.9 AND FORM NO.11, IS LEGITIMATE-


The state government has come across incidents involving real estate agents in connivance with sub-registrars selling properties based on handwritten khatas, with the department of rural development and panchayat raj (RDPR) alerting the public to not buy properties based on handwritten khata!

Following several complaints, RDPR minister HK Patil on Monday urged the public not to buy properties based on handwritten khatas.

“These handwritten khatas are illegal and government has banned them. We appeal to the public not to fall prey to agents trying to sell off a property showing handwritten khata,” Patil said.

According to the minister, several complaints pertaining to handwritten khata transactions were filed in Bagalur police station and Rajnakunte police station limits in Bengaluru North around Kempe Gowda International Airport.

The government has urged people to demand for E-khatas in the place of handwritten khatas.

Elaborating further, Patil said, “People have complained that touts and agents are forging the property documents and using handwritten khatas to get legal sanctity for their transactions. We have reports that several sub-registrars have also been involved in these kinds of transactions. By showing the khata certificate, investor is made to believe that the property that they are buying is legal but in reality it is a forged one. We are taking up the matter with Inspector General of Stamps and Registrations and soon issue directions to sub-registrars at local level not to register any property with handwritten khatas.”

Going a step ahead, the RDPR department has ordered every panchayat to survey the property and upload the details of the property on department’s website.

“We already have a system Bhoomi that takes care of land records. But under the new mapping system we will include GPS facility and identify property based on longitude and latitude,” Patil explained.

What is a Khata?

Khata in general is a revenue document containing details about the land like area, location, measurement etc. Khata is crucial for estimating the tax to be paid by the owner to the local civic body. Interestingly, the state government had discontinued the handwritten khata three-years ago and switched over to E-khata. Yet in some of the places, touts have been using handwritten khatas for speedy sale of properties.

* These are illegal and govt has banned them. We appeal to public to not fall prey to agents trying to sell property showing handwritten khatas – HK Patil, RDPR minister

Cashing in on the sudden demand touts have cheated investors with fraudulent practices, including handwritten khatas.

A NEWS REPORT ON THE REVENUE SITES – BE CAREFUL


A NEWS REPORT ON REVENUE SITES –  WATCH OUT

Last week, the High Court quashed the government orders of 2009 barring registration of Revenue sites/ properties.

Though the State government allowed registration of B Khata properties in the city and e-Khata properties in gramthana areas in December 2013, unapproved layouts and those in the green belt, on the city’s outskirts were not given e-khata, and hence were not registered.

Such property holders in unapproved layouts, green belts and non-converted land can now get their properties legally registered, without the requirement of e-khata or any such additional document.

While there is no official statistic on the number of such revenue pockets in the city, estimates vary from 50,000 sites to over one lakh plots, which are expected to flood the realty market.

The HC quashed the 2009 order saying sub-registrars have no powers to seek any document not stipulated under the Stamps and Registration Act.

However, a former revenue official involved with the 2009 orders said that they were promulgated to prevent mushrooming of unauthorised revenue pockets, especially in the green belt.

The problem is most severe in the newly added 110 villages and other outlying areas of the city, especially in the BDA area outside BBMP jurisdiction,  “Many private layouts have come up even in the green zones in these areas. These have neither got a conversion of land use nor are their layout plans approved,” he said.

But now, it would be tough to control mushrooming of unauthorised revenue pockets, the revenue official said. “Registration doesn’t guarantee title of a property.

This means the buyers will be taken for a ride by revenue layout developers, cheating them with illegal sites, buildings violating bylaws, which may affect the buyer at a later date,” the official said.

 

BOUGHT A PROPERTY WITH DEFECTIVE TITLES OR DISCREPANCY OR VIOLATION OR DEVIATION OR FAKE DOCUMENTS ? DO NOT WORRY


Many properties with title defects and discrepancy, building plan violation, zonal violation, fake or manipulated licenses or approvals had been sold to innocent buyers.

Buyers, who had been cheated, can substantiate their case in the court of law and seek relief from the court and initiate appropriate proceedings against the offenders.  But, in our system, this process takes its own sweet time, due to such delays, the buyers are unwillingly compelled not to take or initiate any action against the cheats and frauds.  But, the buyers must take appropriate action at the right time, if not, legal relief might not be available.

Legal remedy is available to the affected and the buyers need to take swift and stern action against the seller.

DEMOLITION, RECOVERY, ENCROACHMENT, A KATHA, B KATHA, E KATHA, NO KATHA ETC


WAY BACK IN 1960`S TO 1980`S, THE PROPERTY PURCHASE WAS USUALLY DONE THROUGH KNOWN PERSONS OR CHANNELS OR NEIGHBOURS AND THERE WAS NOT MUCH OF “HOME LOANS” AT BANGALORE AND DUE TO THE SUDDEN DEVELOPMENT, THE PRICES SPIRALLED AND THE TOUTS STARTED THE MISCHIEF WITH MANIPULATED-FAKE-BOGUS-WRONG REPRESENTATIONS-FACTS OF THE PROPERTY CONCEALED- TO MAKE MORE MONEY.

THE RESULT OF THIS FAKE DOCUMENTATION IS : DEMOLITION & LITIGATION.

IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT EVEN DURING 1960`S AND 1970`S, THAT NOBODY USE TO BUILD ANYTHING NEAR THE LAKES, UNDER ELECTRICITY LINES,NEAR RAJA KALUVE AND EVEN ON GOVERNMENT PROPERTIES.

THE SPROUTING OF DEVELOPERS AND BUILDERS, LAND MAFIA, TOUTS AND FRAUDSTERS PAVED THE WAY FOR ALL THE ILLEGALITIES.

IN 2012/13, DUE TO ABNORMAL DEMAND `B`KATHA CREATED, MOST OF THE PROPERTIES UNDER THIS CATEGORY HAS ITS OWN FLAWS, THE GOVERNMENT, EVOLVED A FOOLPROOF SYSTEM TO ISSUE `E` KATHA – ELECTRONIC MODE KATHA IN FORM NO.9 AND 11A AS PER THE DIRECTIVES OF HIGH COURT, THUS PUTTING AN END TO THE AGE OLD MANUAL KATHA.

EVEN, KATHA`S ARE NOT FOOLPROOF, AS IT IS ISSUED BY THE REVENUE AUTHORITY, BY SCRUTINISING THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO THEM AND IN SOME OF THE CASES, FAKE DOCUMENTS, BOGUS DOCUMENTS, FALSE STATEMENTS, CONTENTS TWISTED DOCUMENTS, FABRICATED DOCUMENTS ARE SUBMITTED, WHICH CANNOT BE OR COULD NOT BE VERIFIED NOT AUTHENTICATED AND KATHA IS ISSUED ON THE BASIS OF MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS.

MANY BUYERS ARE UNDER THE CONCEPT AND IMPRESSION THAT A KATHA DELIVERS THEM GOOD AND MARKETABLE TITLES. IT IS NOT SO. IT HAS TO BE EXAMINED- HOW THE KATHA IS OBTAINED? WHAT ARE THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED? WHETHER APPROPRIATE AND APPLICABLE TAXES, CHARGES AND LEVIES ARE PAID OR NOT? WHETHER, ALL STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS ARE COMPLIED WITH IT OR NOT?

IN A CASE, AT BELLANDUR(CLOSE TO RING ROAD), IN A TOP END APARTMENT OF A FAMOUS BUILDER, THE RESIDENTS OR THE OWNERS(PRESENT), NOW, ARE PAYING BETTERMENT CHARGES TO GET THE KATHA OF THE PROPERTIES, AS SOME OF THE BANKS ARE DEMANDING THE KATHA AND SOME ARE IN THE PROCESS OF SALES.  THEY CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BUILDER TO PAY –  ARE IN A HURRTY – FORCED TO SHELL DOWN THEIR MONEY TO GET THE KATHA.

`A` KATHA, EC, BANK LOAN, BESCOM CONNECTION, BWSSB CONNECTION,PAYMENT OF TAXES AND TOP BUILDER`S NAME OR GOODWILL DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST.

SOME OF OUR READERS WERE VERY ANGRY AND VENT OUT THEIR FEELINGS AND VIEWS STATING THAT THEY HAVE REGISTERED SALE DEED, THE TITLES WERE GOOD AND  LEGAL 15 YEARS BACK AND HOW IT IS NOT LEGAL TODAY. IT WAS NEVER LEGAL. EVEN THE SUB-REGISTRAR CANNOT REGISTER SUCH PROPERTIES, WHICH ARE IN REVENUE LANDS. IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT AGRICULTURE LAND CANNOT BE BIFURCATED AND SOLD AND IT IS ILLEGAL.  EVEN THE DC CONVERTED SITE DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST WITHOUT PROPER APPROVALS FROM THE CONCERNED TOWN PLANNING AUTHORITY.  THE DC CONVERSION ORDERS ISSUED WAY BACK IN 1970`S AND 1980`S HAD CONDITIONS LAID IN ITS ORDERS THAT THE PROPERTIES WHICH ARE CONVERTED MUST OBTAIN CLEARANCE AND APPROVALS FROM THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES AND ONLY AFTER OBTAINING SUCH CLEARANCE AND APPROVALS, THE MARKETABLE TITLES ARE CONFERRED.  THE MOST IMPORTANT CONDITION IN EVERY ORDER IS THAT IN THE EVENT OF “NON-COMPLIANCE” OF ANY OF THE CONDITIONS WILL RESULT IN THE AUTOMATIC CANCELLATION OF DC CONVERSION ORDER AND ACTION WILL BE INITIATED TO DEMOLISH ANY BUILDINGS OR STRUCTURES WHICH HAVE COME UP ON SUCH PROPERTIES AND THE EXPENDITURE INCURRED TOWARDS SUCH DEMOLITION WILL BE RECOVERED FROM THE OWNER AS REVENUE ARREARS.  THE USE OF SUCH LAND REVERT TO THE ORIGINAL USE, IN CASE OF NON-COMPLIANCE OF ANY OF THE CONDITIONS.  THE GOVERNMENT HAS THE POWERS TO DEMOLISH SUCH STRUCTURES WITHOUT INTIMATION.

BUT, THE BUYERS IN A BID TO ACQUIRE THE PROPERTY, HAS MISREPRESENTED THE FACTS BEFORE THE SUB-REGISTRAR AND GET THE DOCUMENTS REGISTERED.  IN THE SAME MANNER, THE KATHA IS ALSO OBTAINED.

NOW THE BUYERS ASK THE QUESTION? HOW DID SUB-REGISTRAR REGISTERED THE DOCUMENT? FACTS ARE TWISTED AND MISREPRESENTED AND THE BUYER/SELLER PAID XXXXX TO THE TOUT/AGENT TO GET THE SALE DEED REGISTERED AND AGAIN GETS THE KATHA IN THE SAME MANNER, GET THE POWER AND WATER CONNECTION AND PAY THE TAXES, FINALLY, WHEN IT IS DEMOLISHED, THE PROPERTY OWNER GRUMBLES AND CRIES.  

TITLES MUST BE CLEAR WITH MARKETABLE TITLES, ALONG WITH AUTHENTIC KATHA AND ALL STATUTORY APPROVALS, LICENSES, CC,OC AND POSSESSION.

IT IS SAD TO NOTE THAT MANY POOR PEOPLE LOST THEIR HOUSES IN THE RECENT DEMOLITION, WERE COMPLAINING THAT THEY HAVE `A` OR `B` KATHA, TAX PAID RECEIPTS, BESCOM CONNECTION, BWSSB CONNECTION AND REGISTERED SALE DEED. 

IT IS VERY SAD THAT THE HOUSES OF POOR ARE DEMOLISHED AND THE RICH GO SCOT FREE WITH LITIGATION FOR COUPLE OF YEARS AND THE NOTORIOUS BUILDER WHO STOLE THE GOVERNMENT LAND AND ROAD IS HAPPILY ROAMING AROUND AND SELLING HIS PROPERTIES.

THE COMMON STATEMENT MADE BY THE TOUTS, AGENTS AND THE BUILDERS IS THAT “THERE IS 90% DEVIATION EVERYWHERE, HAS THE GOVERNMENT GOT THE GUTS TO DEMOLISH? NO CHANCE” YOU CAN HAPPILY BUY AND IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, WE WILL BE THERE- BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT YOU(THE BUYERS) WILL NOT BE THERE.

HENCE, CONDUCT DUE DILIGENT ENQUIRY AND EXAMINATION INTO ALL THE ASPECTS AND THEN PROCEED TO BUY. NO HURRY. IF YOU HURRY, WORRY WILL TAKE OVER.

SOME ARGUMENTS WITHOUT LEGAL SANCTITY AT THE PLACE OF DEMOLITION


BBMP HAS GIVEN US A KATHA?

HOW CAN BBMP GIVE A KATHA FOR THE ENCROACHED OR GOVERNMENT PROPERTIES?

DOCUMENTS ARE FABRICATED OR FAKE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO THE BBMP AND PAID xxxxx TO GET THE KATHA.  ANY PERMISSION, KATHA, LICENSE, APPROVAL OBTAINED BY SUBMITTING FAKE OR BOGUS OR FABRICATED DOCUMENTS AND IF THE FACTS ARE TWISTED OR MISREPRESENTED, AUTOMATICALLY, WITHOUT NOTICE AND INTIMATION THE KATHA  “STANDS CANCELLED”.  HENCE THIS KATHA HAS TO BE EXAMINED THOROUGHLY AND REVENUE DOCUMENTS ARE SECONDARY TITLE DOCUMENTS, THOUGH, THEY ARE IMPORTANT, DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST. 

BESCOM HAS GIVEN US CONNECTION.

BESCOM IS A MERCHANT ESTABLISHMENT, THOUGH OWNED BY THE GOVERNMENT, IS A SUPPLIER OF ELECTRICITY FOR A TARIFF(PRICE).  THE ELECTRICITY CONNECTION IS PROVIDED BASED ON THE ABOVE STATED KATHA, WHICH IS IRREGULAR OR ILLEGAL, CANNOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST. HENCE THIS AVERMENT DOES NOT STAND THE LEGAL VALIDATION.

BWSSB- CAUVERY WATER CONNECTION – IS ALSO A PUBLIC UTILITY AND A PROVIDER OF WATER FOR A TARIFF AND ANY CONNECTION OR SUPPLY DOES NOT ENTITLE THE PRECIPITANT ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST.

KATHA MUST HAVE BEEN OBTAINED ON AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE DOCUMENTS WITHOUT CONTRADICTING ANY PROVISIONS OF THE APPLICABLE LAW, LIKE KARNATAKA MUNICIPALITY ACT, KARNATAKA LAND REVENUE ACT, KTCP ACT, KARNATAKA LAND REFORMS ACT, RDPR ACT, BDA/BMRDA ACT AND OTHER APPLICABLE AND RELEVANT ACTS. 

HENCE, A THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF KATHA AND HOW IT IS OBTAINED AND THE BASIS ON WHICH IT IS OBTAINED IS ALSO CRUCIAL TO VALIDATE THE TITLES.
