Sakala Khata Registration Process
The process for filing Khata registration is as below.

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
