If you want buy agriculture land to buy land in Karnataka be prepared to spend a atleast a year, wear out your footwear & empty your pocket.
Railway Police  |  Citizen Services Rs 25,000
A longish post but please bear with me.
As per Section 79A&B of the Karnataka Land Reforms Act 1961 any person or his ancestors not owning any agricultural land in his name & who wants to buy agriculture land in Karnataka, the said person's income should not exceed 2 lakhs per year & the following documents need to be produced:-
6) Income certificate
7)The Land is does not come under PTCL, Bhusudarena & Bhusvadena.
8)Affidavit promising land to be used only for agricultural purposes and no other purposes
9) ********** karmika/Agriculturist
10) agreement copy
11)Section 79 A&B endorsements:These are issued by the Tahsildar.
12) AC permission to buy land.
As a resident of B'lore & land 's location in Malavalli taluk, to get the above information took me nearly a month with officials in Taluk office of B'lore,Malavalli & Mandya not interested/not knowledgeble to give proper information.
Finally after reading about Advocate Sridara Babu's blog & directly contacting AC'c office in Mandya got the above information.
First thing when I went to taluk's office tout's adviced me to get a duplicate Khata costing 4,000/- saying that most people wanting buying land do the same & he has done many such cases,to which i refused as it is illegal.
With limited knowledge,pressure form the seller as the agreement period is time bound & the permission process going nowhere with no help from officers finally decided to to bribe as it is inevitable.
The bribe details below:-
Revenue officer Malavalli to get EC,PTCL & Busdarena done within 20 days & his "fees" 5,500/-.
Mandya case worker a lady (more a con artist) who seemed to be very understanding very told me "i can understand your pain,the officials here think every Bangalorian is a software engineers earning in lakhs & demand bribe but dont worry i will help you". And help me she did..
1500/- bribe just to start the process of processing the application.
told me to get
*revenue sketch(not required only survey sketch required)
*then Induvidual sketch(n.a) after getting that
*then grama nakasha(required)
*tippani copy -all of the above said documents could have been told to get together but the lady case worker In Mandya DC's office told me get the docs one after another.
This involves travelling from Blore to Malavalli Taluk to collect docs & submitting the same docs to Mandya. This process took me 4 months. Once again took 1,500/- to send the documents to Revenue Inspector.
The Surveyour's who is very difficult to get hold of & the bribe to get Induvidual sketch,akarabandu,tippani copy grama nakasha 8,000/-.
Then 3,000 to the revenue officer In Mandya to process the applicitation & send it to special land acquisition officer.
Finally got the busvadhena done.
Then income certificate in B'lore KG road taluk office 800/-. Family tree -1750/-.
After getting all of the above documents submit the docs in Mandya AC's office who tapal/ sends it to Malavalli's tasildar's office.
Again after much difficulty located the documents and gave it to the case worker again a lady in Malavalli.
Bribe to case worker to send it to revenue official of the respective hobli 1000/-.
The revenue official whose job is to check if the documents are in order & write a report stating if the said person is eligible to buy land took over 2 weeks to do the same.
Next Rs 2,500 to the shirastedar to
process my file.
Then the Shrastedar asked the revenue inspector to come to his office where much to my horror the revenue officer asked me to furnish khatha details.
If i had khatha in my name why would i approach the AC to give permission to buy land when i could directly register it.
When i started to explain the about sec 79a&b(which is not my job, a revenue official is supposed to know the rules) he got angry, took the report back with him & after 2 more weeks sent it to shirestadar in Malavalli stating to know the
a)source of funds to buy land b) furnish the details of belonging to a agricltural family which is not required.
The shirastedar now has asked me to get the all the documents asked by the revenue officer.
In ********** sight i should have listened to the tout paid 4,000 got my property registered than spend more than 25,000 just on the bribe(not including cost & time of travel from B'lore to Mandya,Malavalli etc cost of fencing,plowing,planting) & the permission to buy land is still pending & i'm not sure if i'll be able to buy land.
I started this process in month of october 2011 & now the owner is threatning to cancel the deal as the agreement period was for thee months & i don't blame him.
If he does that i stand to lose all the money i spent on land development,bribe most importantly time. When most people are running away from agriculture i have made foolish attempt to get back into agriculture.
Also i request Janaagraha to remove "report an honest offficial from toolkit".
