How will you establish your right over a certain property? In Tamil Nadu, a ‘Patta’ is all the evidence you need to prove your legal right over a property. Note that it is applicable only for land and not apartments. However, you may have a Patta for the land on which the apartment is built. Given that the land on which an apartment building stands is divided among different owners, commonly known as the undivided share (UDS), usually a Patta is not issued in this case.
