It is always safer to buy property within limits of muncipal corporation 

2) if you want to buy property approved by panchayat check whether plans have been sanctioned by panchayat and that construction carried on as per sanctioned plans

Buying land that is listed under the gram panchayat requires converting land that has been listed under agricultural use by paying a nominal conversion fee to the government.

A computer generated Khata is mandatory as a submission proof in order to buy a gram panchayat land. 

The rural development and panchayats have been granted permission by the government to approve layouts/residential properties that are within one acre of land within the village boundaries.

 Lands that are outside the above purview are to be approved by the directorate of town or village planning.

In many instances, the gram panchayat does not have the authority to convert agricultural land to residential property and use.

In such circumstances, you may need to approach the directorate of planning and town welfare. 

Other problems associated with the purchase of land is to carefully check and verify the land usage details, to ensure that the land does not fall under the reserved category and that it is fully cleared for ownership.

You can get a legal opinion from a local lawyer before you proceed for purchasing the property.

Find out whether the title of the property is free and matketable or not. Merely because it is panchayat approved does not mean the title is free.
