What is Land Mutation?

A mutation is a compulsory process that is essential for all legal transactions involving the land / property.

Why Do We Need to Mutate Our Land?

A land mutation is significant for various reasons. Some of them are –

  • If the owner of a land wants to sell it then he / she will be required to show the mutation certificate to the buyer. It works as a verification.
  • The ownership of a specific land or property can be proven by the mutation certificate. 
  • A mutation certificate is required for tax payment liabilities. It works as a legal document of land records and thus is mandatory if a dispute arises.
  • The mutation certificate specifies the names of all the co-owners in case of joint ownership. 

Types of Land Mutation:

  • Inheritance or Will Deed – Transfer of land or property from a parent to son / daughter or any such transfers between genetically related persons.
  • Sale/Gift Deed – Transfer of land through sale or any other means.
  • Property Exchange Deed – Through this type of mutation document, one can keep a record of property exchange. In simpler words, it is required if you transfer your property to someone in exchange for theirs.

  1. Dear Sir,
    My father has a 2 kattah 5 chattak land which was purchased on 1988. That time, mutation was not compulsory and my father was not aware of all this legal proceedings, hence it was not done. Now, at present, while my father is willing to sell the land, due to non-availability of mutation, he is unable to do. Moreover, it is impossible to get back dated records for mutation as the history is more than 50-60years to generate mutation of present date. Kindly guide how to proceed for registry without mutation or any alternatives as we have understood that it is quite impossible to get mutation (many lawyers has already tried to do so but in vain due to inavailability of proper records) and being a senior citizen, it is not possible for my father to run after due to this. Kindly guide as he badly wants to sell his alloted land.
    Rianka Sarkar
