The property is a plot at Sahakara Nagar in Bangalore. From what I heard, if using Will, we need to do Khatha transfer (not Registration) at sub-registrars office. What is Khatha transfer and what does it involve and how it is different from registration ? What documents do we need for Khatha transfer?
The khatha transfer is being done by BBMP and not by Sub-registrar.
Khatha literally means, account. It is a document that shows a property owner having an account with the Municipality or any civic authority (BBMP -Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike) for paying taxes. The details of a it include the property owner’s name, size/measurement of property, location,built-up area, vacant or occupied etc., and is essentially required to calculate the total tax payable on that property.
For procedure, first you have to apply in the form prescribed for transferred property.
