Patta and Chitta comprise the Tamil Nadu government’s land revenue data. In all property transactions related to Tamil Nadu like transfers of properties, property pledges, legal opinion, etc., Patta and Chitta documents have an important role. In this article, we discuss Patta Chitta in detail.

Patta is a legal document issued on behalf of the property’s actual owner by the Tamil Nadu Government. Let’s see what Patta includes:

  • District/Taluk/Village name
  • Patta Number
  • Owner Name

When buying a property, verifying the Patta records ensures that the rightful owner has purchased the property according to the government record.

In What Types of Properties People need Patta?

In the case of vacant plots of land, Patta is compulsory. This is the primary document in which ownership is legally created. Patta is the most important document for establishing legal ownership even for properties with structures and buildings. This incorporates other important details such as the extent of possessions and measurements of the land.

Patta is primarily a document needed for land rather than buildings. The Patta can, however, have particulars regarding buildings. If it is an apartment, the land is usually held in undivided shares and Patta does not claim it for undivided shares. However, the Patta may be obtained in the names of the co-owners if necessary.
