Adangal – Tamil Nadu

In a property transaction, adangal document plays an important role in establishing a clear property title to the seller. Adangal is maintained by the concerned Village Administrative Officer (VAO) and can be obtained by making an application. In this article, we look at the procedure for obtaining adangal in detail.

What is Adangal?

Adangal is a type of land record that is maintained by the Village Administrate Officer. Adangal is also known as Village account No.2. and is written each year by the Village Administrative Officer. The documents contain the following details:

  • Patta lands
    • Wet
    • Dry
    • Manavari
  • Assessed wastelands
    • Wet
    • Dry
  • Poramboke land

It is the primary duty of the Village Administrative Officer to register in the adangal the details of crops raised in the land, trees standing on all government lands (whether under tree tax system or not) cases of unauthorized occupation of Government lands, cases of Fasli Jasthi and Theervai Jasthi, etc. The Village Administrative Officer (VAO) should do the recording of crops every month. Hence, the adangal provides a timeline of ownership and use of property making it invaluable in establishing a property title.

Details in Adangal

Adangal contains various important details like the Survey Number of the property, extent, assessment and land classification which is taken from A register. Further, the name of the landowner is also mentioned in the adangal with reference to the Chitta document. Finally, the document contains details of trees, wells, lands reserved for Scheduled Castes or Scheduled Tribes, assignments made with or without conditions. However, the details in adangal should be drawn up every year and the figures (extent and assessment) classification wise should tally with those noted in ‘A’ Register.
