1. Agricultural land can be bought in Karnataka after fulfilling certain requirements. The annual average income of the person including agricultural income should be less than Rs 25 lakhs. The person must have had an agricultural land in his name before the year 1974. The person should be an agriculturist or an agricultural worker by profession.

2. If the old pani is in your grandparents name then get a family tree done and notarized.

There is no specific rule to be followed under the said situation. The Normal rules meant for purchase of property or transfer of property through a gift deed can be followed.
