The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara  Palike (BBMP) provides a few services under the Sakala scheme. These services include Khata registration, Khata transfer, building plan approval and issue of Khata extract and certificate. The Sakala scheme was initiated to bring transparency in administration.



What documents need to be submitted for Khata registration

As part of the Khata registration, the documents that need to be submitted are given below.

  1. Application in prescribed form. The application form is available for Rs. 10/-.
  2. Attested or notarized sale deed.
  3.  Attested copy of the title deed.
  4. Copy of Encumbrance certificate also known as EC (in form 15 for the past 10 years). This EC should be in your name. If the EC is not in your name, then you might have to apply for it at the sub-registrar’s office. To get this encumbrance certificate, you would need to submit a copy of your sale deed with a total fee that is calculated at the rate of Rs. 45/- per year. The EC will be available within three days.
  5.  Land conversion certificate issued by competent authority
  6.  Survey sketch/ Tippani copies
  7. Title documents/earlier Title Deeds with flow chart of Title
  8. Copies of previous tax payment receipts (three to five years). If the property has been recently purchased, then these receipts might be in the name of the previous owner or the builder.
  9. Affidavit in case of inheritance/will deed/gift deed/court decree, etc.
  10.  Original death certificate in case of Khatedar’s death which might necessitate transfer.
  11. NOC from all members of Khatedar’s family.
  12. Copies of NOC (No-objection certificate) from Town Planning Authority (BDA) for bifurcation of land. In case the land area is less than that mentioned in land conversion certificate, NOC for bifurcation is required.

You might be also asked for documents like

  1.  Building plan approval letter.
  2.  Approved site plan.
  3. Khata certificate and extract (with the name of the previous owner or the builder).
  4. Occupancy certificate (OC). Read more about “Bangalore Occupancy Certificate: A complete guideline” 

Sakala Khata Registration Process

The process for filing Khata registration is as below.

  1. Buy a Khata application form from the BBMP Assistant Revenue Officer (ARO). Fill the application form and attach the above mentioned documents.
  2. Submit the application form at the BBMP office. Inform the case worker that the application needs to be submitted under Sakala scheme. The form will then be uploaded to Sakalaand and you will be provided a 15 digit acknowledgement number(GSC acknowledgement number) that will be sent to your mobile number.
  3. If any document is missing, the case worker will inform you about it. Submit the documents. In case the case worker is not accepting the document without any specific reason, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call Sakala helpline 080-44554455.
  4. Once the application is submitted, contact the Sakala office to find the status of the application in a few days. The application should be accepted within 30 days. In case of any delay, an appeal can be registered with the revenue officer. In case of any further delays, register an appeal with the joint commissioner. A notification regarding the status of your application should be sent to you via post.
  5. You will need to draw two demand drafts- one for the Khata registration fee which is 2% of the stamp duty paid at the time of registration of the property and another is for availing Khata certificate and extract which is a sum of Rs. 125/-. Submit these demand drafts at the BBMP office once the application has been approved.
  6. Khata certificate and extract made in your name shall be provided.

The timeline needed to get the Khata registered is given below.

Hi Krishna,

Just read all your excellent replies. Thank you for the service

My question - I have property in Kengeri and need to get A khata. Is BBMP issuing A khata now?

Thank You,

Hi Syed,

The property might have been a B khata property. Do you have any ideas about that?

Thanks and regards,

Sakala is a joke, bunch of incapable puppets. They don't know anything except to read out verses printed in their website. A wolf in sheep's cloth, the government has put Sakala as a gimmick to show-off that they guarantee services. I had done everything to get my bifurcation Khata done and sought help from Sakala. They didn't know who are the officers inolved, what is bifurcation and couldn't help me how to avoid bribing the case workers. My file waited for 3 months before giving 30K bribe.

We have purchased a new apartment in Bangalore in the year 2005 and got the Khata also. Now I would like to sell this flat. The buyer is asking whether the khata is a 'A' khata or a 'B' Khata. The Khata document is written in Kannada and we are not able to read and understand the same.
To my knowledge, BBMP starts issuing 'A' and 'B' khata for the last few years and it was not the case in 2005. Also I read from net that court has taken strong objection on issue of 'A' and 'B' khata.

I would like to know whether BBMP still issues 'A' and 'B' khatas?
If the khata is 'B' how can we convert this to 'A' type?

Request you to please reply immediately
