If you are planning to buy a land in urban area, it is essential that you check the property card of the seller and ensure his/her ownership of the land. Even if you are planning to buy a flat, you may want to check the ownership of the land on which the apartment is being constructed. This will help you avoid any hassle in future. Most of the developers, local governing bodies and investors seek property card of the owner before closing a deal. This document is also used in court litigations related to land within city limits.

Ans. The Property Card contains almost all the information about a Property such as the:
- Name of the land owner
- Survey number of the land
- Area of the land
- Changes in ownership
- Details of loans taken by the owner from government agencies
- Details of pending litigations, if any.
- Details of tax levied on the land. This includes paid and unpaid taxes.

Ans. Property owners are required to approach the City Survey office to get the property card for their properties. However, in recent times the government has made it possible to get property cards with a single click of the mouse. Property cards for all land properties are available online. This enables property owners to avoid the time consuming process of applying through city survey office.
Q5. What is the difference between the 7/12 extract and property card?
Ans: In Maharashtra State Property Card is for Urban Area and 7/12 utara for land in rural area. Both are title cards city survey for residential property and 7/12 for agricultural lands. The 7/12 extract is a record of a land property in a rural area, ownership of the property and type and purpose of the land. This mainly deals with areas that are outside city limits. Property cards contain information about a specific property in urban area and its ownership. Making land records available online will help reduce fraudulent activities, settle ownership or other land related disputes and maintain an updated public record.
7/12 extracts for the entire state of Maharashtra were made available online in 2006. Computerizing property cards and making it available online for all the districts in Maharashtra is still in progress and is estimated to cost around Rs. 25 crores. This project includes computerizing all 7/12 extracts and property cards in 358 taluks of 35 districts and training government officials on hardware, software, data entry, verification and validation of records.
This project is expected to be completed in 2015 and will enable you to obtain land related records and update land related documents from the comfort of your desk. Though this is a welcome move by the government that enables transparency and reduces time wasted on official processes, implementing the project across the state, mainly in rural areas, and training users and employees on the system will be a huge challenge.
