  • Patta  is an important document containing information on rights, ownership system, and burdens available on the e-Services TN website at eservices.tn.gov.in.
  • Patta Chitta Document is a combination of two different documents, Patta and Chita, which perform two different functions but are attached for the purpose of facilitating the compiler of information online.

What is Patta

  • An online patta is a legal document in Tamil Nadu that acts as a record for a particular land. 
  • This document is issued by the government in the name of the proprietor’s property. “Record of Rights (ROR)” is another name for the document.

The Patta contains the following legal points

  • Name of the owner
  • Survey No and Subdivision No
  • Name of the respective district, taluk, and village
  • area of land in ares ( 1 are = 1076 sq ft )
  • Plot Tax-related details

(UDR – Updating Data Registry):

  • From 1979 to 1986, the U.T.R. was deployed across Tamil Nadu on a large scale by regularising and reserving the land title deeds that were found manually, visiting all the village lands (except natham lands), and conducting a direct field investigation (just as the work of dividing the documents in the house as necessary and unnecessary and subordinating ours to that of others) was carried out on a large scale. 
  • They gave it a register and loaded it into the computer.
  • That is to say, from the time the manual documents were computerized till now, we have been using it as a patta document. ·
  •  Now all of this has been loaded online.
