Mysoreans to get property certificates soon


Addressing a joint news conference here on Thursday, Additional Deputy Commissioner Dr C G Betsurmutt and Department of Land Revenue Joint Director K V Rudresh said that there is a notion among citizens that the khata certificate issued by Mysore City Corporation is the one and only document that establishes right over property. However, the document prepared as per the Karnataka Land Revenue Act in form number-13 has been the legal document that proves ownership over property in city. In case of agriculture land, it is Form Number 16 and known as RTC. 

The department has taken up this job under Private-Public participation programme and technical assistance has been taken from a private company. The citizens need to extend cooperation for the measurement of property as well as checking documents. This work has been taken up in five cities in the State including Mysore. The survey work has been going on in Ward No 12 in J P Nagar since November 23. The same work would start in other areas of the city, they added. They said that the work is expected to be completed within an year and the property document would be given to those who possess all legal documents. The similar would also be taken up in 42 villages surrounding the city. Plans are afoot to complete this work in all 226 cities and towns across the State in next three to four years.
