As most first time and experienced buyers know, Khata is an important document required when buying or selling any property.
There are two types of khatha, A khatha and B khatha.
A new update in this area includes the inclusion of e-khata. E Khata refers to electronic Khata. It is filed online.
E Khata is not a new document but just a computerized version of Khata that can be availed. E-khata can be availed for only those properties that have been assigned a PID number. Not all properties have PID numbers allotted to them. All properties under BMP have been assigned property IDs or PIDs.
In order to obtain E khata, the owner of A khata shall have to submit a few photographs of the site, owner's photograph with digital signature and a copy of A khata to the BBMP office or panchayat office. Additionally, a 1% fee in case of panchayat or a 2% fee in case of BBMP, will have to be paid. BBMP office or local body will use the data to allot PID to the property.
