 As most first time and experienced buyers know, Khata is an important document required when buying or selling any property. Generally, Khatas are of two types A khata and B khata. We had earlier discussed on the differences between these two types of Khatas. We had also discussed about the way to obtain Khata as well as the Sakala scheme for obtaining Khatas.

A new update in this area includes the inclusion of e-khata. E Khata refers to electronic Khata. It is filed online. Generally, Khata is an account of property details such as owner's name, size, location, area, built up area, etc. It determines the official tax payer for the apartment or property. It is also required to calculate the tax that needs to be paid for a property. Once all government verification has been performed, property owners receive Khata and PID numbers for their respective properties.

e khata

However, some people believe that E Khata is a mandatory new document required for all properties. 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 but most of the properties under BBMP have not been assigned PID and consequently, have not received Khatas also. 

Advantages of E-Khata

  1. E khata will allow a property owner to check his property and Khata using the PID number and make property tax payments online.
  2. Property owners can also receive property tax payment receipts using the PID number.
  3. Up to date khata certificates and extracts can be easily obtained through BBMP kiosks and centers.

Can all owner get an E-Khata

Some property owners who own properties under BBMP are in doubt about whether they would be able to obtain E Khata.

E khata is available for all properties under BMP as these properties have been verified by authorities and have been assigned a PID number. BBMP has still not completed the verification of all properties and thus, many properties under BBMP have still not received PID numbers. Most of these properties have only got Khata numbers as these properties are registered under the manually maintained Khata records. Once these are verified, they will be assigned PID numbers and then the owners will be able to obtain E-Khatas.

Properties that are registered under B register will not be able to obtain E khata as they will not have a PID number. Only those properties that have A khatas assigned to them will be able to obtain PID numbers and ultimately the E Khata.

How to obtain E khata

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. The process should take between 5-15 days. In order to simply obtain the PID, read the aforementioned article.

E Khata should be made for the new address and not the current address.

Thanks,
Krish
Quoting GSharma:
I recently got an apartment transferred to me via gift deed. EKhata has also been made now in my name. I am currently residing in an independent house and while the ekahata document has the address of my current residence, it nowhere has the postal address of the new apartment for which ekhata was made in the first place. Is my ekhata valid? How will it be tied to the property without any mention of the address?
