What Is Patta?

A "Patta" is a legal document that the Tamil Nadu government issues to the landowner. It serves as documentation of income related to the particular person's land ownership. The district office of the Tahsildar, where the land is situated, is where one obtains the "Patta" (also known as the Record of Rights or ROR).

The Patta will comprise the following details:

The Patta number | The owner’s name | Name of the district/taluk/village | Survey number and subdivision | The total area of the land | Information on tax paid | Land classification - wetland or dryland

What is Chitta?

The Village Administration Officer (VOA) and the district office of the Tahsildar, where the land is located, are responsible for maintaining the Chitta, a land revenue document, which relates to a specific plot of land. The distinguishing characteristic is to categorise it as a wetland property or a dryland property, even though the document gives information regarding ownership of the land, extent of the land, survey number, geographical details, etc

Pattachitta: The Unification

In 2015, the Government of Tamil Nadu decided to unify ‘Patta’ and ‘Chitta’ into a single document called ‘Pattachitta’. The ‘Pattachitaa’ is an important piece of legal document that is required for all property-related transactions.
