Sir, I want to correct the name in Khatauni. The name of my father is Nasir Ahmed Khan, but only Nasir is written in the Khatauni. Therefore my father has not been getting the benefit of government schemes. How to get a correction in the land record?
The Tehsildar is empowered under the the Uttar Pradesh land revenue code 2006 to receives all the application relating to correction in the land record like a map, khasra, khatauni etc. Section 38 of the revenue code provides a complete procedure for rectification of mistakes. You should follow that procedure and rectify mistakes in the Khatauni.
The whole procedure for correction in Khatauni is very short. You may apply to the Tehsildar along with relevant evidence. Evidence is mandatory for seeking correction because the Tehsildar will examine the evidence and if he thinks fit, he can conduct an inquiry. Therefore, you should collect the evidence before filing of correction application
The Collector periodically updates the land records such as field book, record of rights, maps etc. Some mistakes take place during the process of updation. If few cases, the mistake has been occurring since the beginning of alienation of rights. When a tenure holder dies, his right and title in the land devolves upon his legal heirs. The right of his legal heir begins after the alienation of such rights upon him. This is two general situations when mistakes occur in the land records.
Mistakes during updation of records
You can rectify the mistake easily when mistake took place during the updation. In this situation, you should produce certified copies of two subsequent records and bring this fact in the notice of Tehsildar. Thereafter he shall send the report to the SDM for correction in the revenue record. Only certified copies of two consecutive Fasli years record are sufficient to enable the revenue officer to rectify the mistake.
When mistake occurred from beginning of right
In this situation you should present relevant evidence in support of correction. When the name of tenure holder is wrongly entered in the recodes you must produce evidence which tend to show his correct name. You can produce educational records such as High School certificate, family register, PAN card, AADHAR card etc. These document is relevant to prove the correct name of tenure holder.
You should follow this link to know the whole procedure relating to correction in revenue record. The procedure is too short and summary in nature. You can get correction within in a month.
