A khasra number is an essential parameter to establish rights to a property. It is one of the most crucial components of the Sharja document. The Sharja comprises a full map of the village’s territory. This document is prepared and maintained by the Lekhpal and the Patwari respectively.
- The Lekhpal is responsible for preparing the document.
- The Patwari is appointed to maintain and update the record on a regular basis.
Note: The plot number and the khasra number are not usually the same. If a plot or piece of land is sold, gifted, split, or post-mutated, the khasra number changes correspondingly.
For instance, suppose the khasra number allotted to a plot of land is 64. It is later separated into two pieces, and the newly allocated khasra numbers will be 64/1 and 64/2.
