Bhulekh Mahabhumi: Introduction

Bhulekh Mahabhumi is a digital initiative by the Government of Maharashtra to offer its citizens the ease of accessing online the land records and miscellaneous information on land holdings in the state of Maharashtra. Information such as Malmatta Patrak (property cards), and Satbara Utara (7/12 Extract) and 8A extract can be accessed by citizens on the Maharashtra Land Records portal – Bhulekh Mahabhumi. 

What is the Satbara Utara (7/12 Extract)?

Every district in Maharashtra maintains a register containing information about lands in the district. The 7/12 is an extract from such a register that contains the full details of a particular plot. It is issued by the Tehsildar’s office on behalf of Revenue Department and comprises of details regarding:

  • Land/Plot Ownership

  • Survey Number

  • Dimensions of the land

  • Type of Land (agricultural/non-agricultural)

  • Type of Cultivation or Crop (for agricultural land)

  • Cultivator’s Name

  • Occupancy Rights

  • Disputes in Land title, if any

The numeric 7/12 denotes an amalgamation of two village form numbers – Form VII and Form XII. While Form VII contains details of land ownership and rights, Form XII contains information related to agricultural features of the land.

Significance of Malmatta Patrak (Property Cards) in Maharashtra

A Malmatta Patrak or a property card is an ownership title document of property in urban areas, as issued by the local authorities in Maharashtra. A property card includes information such as landowner name, area of the land, survey number, plot number, district, taluka, village, liabilities, and litigations, etc. It is useful in verifying the ancestral ownership details of the land and preventing its illegal encroachment. It is a necessary document for forging and finalising any sale/purchase agreement between interested parties.

Conclusion

Property owners in Maharashtra can now easily download the 7/12 extract, 8A extract, and property cards without having to physically visit the local administration’s office. Realtors and investors too can now access these documents on the Mahabhumi portal to verify the land details before deciding to purchase or invest in it. So, if you are looking to buy a flat or a plot in Maharashtra, you could stay assured with unfettered access to 7/12, 8A extracts, and property cards that can help establish the legality of the property.
