A land record in Jharkhand, commonly known as Khatian serves as a legal document to certify the land ownership. A landowner in Jharkhand must possess a Khatian to prove his/her legal rights over the property. The following land details are consolidated in the Register-II on the Jharbhoomi Jharkhand portal:
Classified into varieties such as forest land, Ryoti(land over which rights have been acquired for cultivation purposes), Railway, Sikami(tenancy land), district council, etc.
Khata is an account number allocated to a family and indicates its members’ entire landholdings. It divulges the details of landowners and their land holdings
It is an identification number assigned to each land parcel, as per government records. It is a plot or survey number allocated to a given area of land in villages. In urban areas, land parcels are allocated a survey or plot number.
Also known as the Record of Rights, it comprises entries related to land ownership, Khesra number, and latest information on various rights over a given land.
