Suvarna Khata was launched as part of Suvarna Bangalore celebrations in 2006 to curb the rampant corruption at BBMP's revenue offices.

The process of obtaining khatas has been simplified to ensure that citizens, who apply for khata, can get it easily. Although it was initially decided to sanction the khata within 30 working days from the date of applying for properties under all categories, the civic body has now decided to give the khatas within seven days in respect of some properties.

Khatas for properties that have been allotted by Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) and the Karnataka Housing Board will be issued within seven days. This apart, such properties that already have a khata and have to be transferred to some other person will be sanctioned within seven days. Applications pertaining to properties in BDA reconveyed areas, gramathanas and revenue extensions, khata bifurcation, amalgamation and high-rise buildings (apartments and commercial complexes) will be cleared within 30 days. Khatas for all properties can be collected after the prescribed number of days from the same counters. The documents required would be printed behind the application form and put up at every revenue office.

Some of the documents required are title deed, tax receipt and a rough sketch of the property. The prescribed tax and khata extract fee should be paid through demand draft in favour of the BBMP Commissioner. This should be submitted along with application and other documents. Any complaints with regard to "Suvarna Khata" can be lodged with the zonal joint commissioners.

Application form for Suvarna Khata is available here.
