Every property’s revenue records and details are maintained by the State Government. In Tamil Nadu, this is known as Patta Chitta. Till 2015 they existed as two different documents, however, from 2015 onwards, they were jointly known as Patta.
Patta earlier was known for records of rights of the property, address of the property including district, Taluk, Village, survey number, subdivision, area of land, tax details. Chitta contained the details of owners, area, and size of the property maintained by the village administration officer.
To support the DILRMP (Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme) launched by the Government of India, these documents are now taken online. The citizens can now access all these land records online by Tamil Nadu Patta Chitta Land Record Cell governed by the revenue department of the state.
