Facts about Punjab land records
Recall here that the British introduced the land-mapping work in India, which included inclusion of water bodies, areas of strategic importance, living quarters, etc., along the landscape. With an aim to increase land revenue, they also tried to make shifting settlers into permanent farmers. Land records in India were first introduced by the British and they continued to be in the same form (i.e., physical documents) till recently, including in Punjab.
What is Jamabandi?
Jamabandi is among the many colloquial terms that are used to describe records of land rights in India. The term Jamabandi is more commonly used in northern states such as Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan. The term is also used in states like Bihar and Himachal Pradesh. Land management agencies in these states maintain online and offline jamabandi registers, which provide information about the land, the owners and the cultivators, etc. You can check jamabandi record in Punjab at jamabandi.punjab.gov.in.
What is fard?
The title document of a property is known by various names in India, depending on the nature of the ownership. While a home buyer will have a sale deed in his possession as the proof of the title, a landowner will have jamabandi records as the proof of the ownership. All these documents are broadly known as the ‘fard’ documents.
What is collector rate?
While land is a state subject in India, district administrations are responsible for fixing a standard rate for land and other properties across the city, below which a transaction cannot be registered in the government’s records. This value is known by names such as collector rate, circle rate and district collector rate.
This means that if the worth of a property is Rs 50 lakhs, according to government-fixed collector rates, you can not register this property for a value less than Rs 50 lakhs, even if the seller has agreed to take only Rs 45 lakhs as the transaction amount from you.
