The Karnataka High Court issued an order and categorized B-Khata properties as illegal. Hence, B-Khata properties must be converted to A-Khata to avoid complications in trading, construction, and transferring. However, the conversion process involves a lot of bureaucratic hurdles: you must pay BBMP Betterment charges and you also need to ensure that all the property taxes are paid till date without any dues.
According to the revenue rules in Karnataka, a revenue land without conversion can be measured only in guntha and only an agriculturist is eligible to buy land in guntha. The term "Guntha" is a land measuring unit. It is typically used to measure the size of a piece of land. For e.g., one guntha means 1089 square feet [sq ft].
