How to change land ownership to my name?

Date: 15 Dec 2015   Posted By: Harikrishna     Group: Government    Category: State Government   

I have 10 acres of land which was bought by my grandfather 50 years ago. He did not know that the land belongs to God Siva. This land is not cultivated and hence the villagers do not get any money. They want to sell this land and buy 2 acres in another place. How can I change this? Awaiting advice from experts.

Each transaction of land has to be recorded and registered at the local office of the revenue department of the state concerned e. g. in Uttar Pradesh it is the Sub-Registrar's Offices of Stamps & the Registration Department, Government of Uttar Pradesh. Without such record and registration, legal transaction cannot be done. The author may contact a local lawyer together with original records /documents related to the land concerned for further advice and necessary action.

First try to trace the document of purchase of the land. That will only entitle your grandfather for the land. If found, read it and understand the full details of the transaction. If you need help get an experienced document wrier or a well-wisher advocate who can help you.

If the original document could not be traced, then:
Please verify with the village Office basic tax register, as to whose name the land stands and who pays the basic tax if any. How the land is categorised. From the village office records you may get the original land document number if there was a written and registered sale deed in your grand fathers' name. With that number you may apply for a search and encumbrance certificate at the Sub Registrar office.

If as per what you say"land belongs to God Siva", then it may be owned by the local temple. But there may be some land laws in your state which give ownership to those who hold the land and in possession for so-and -so many years. For this you may need professional advise.

Is this 10 acres the villagers are going to sell or is there much more land and this land is only a part of it? It is not clear.
