‘Patta’ issue to go online soon in Chennai

The concept of ‘patta’ – a legal paper attesting to the actual owner of a plot of land – may not have been so popular in big cities, but landholders in Chennai can soon get ‘patta’ online under a new government initative aimed at curbing bogus transactions. As the run-up to the exercise, 3.76 lakh land records in Chennai district have been computerised. The National Informatics Centre is developing a software. Once it is ready, computer-generated ‘patta’ documents can be issued, say officials.
