Jharkhand Land Mutation

Mutation of a property/land is the change of title ownership from one person to another when a property is sold or transferred. By mutating a property, the new owner gets the title of the property recorded on his/her name in the land revenue department, and the government of Jharkhand can charge property tax from the rightful owner. The change in title ownership may occur due to the reasons such as the death of the original owner and following transfer of the owner due to inheritance or succession. In the case of leased property, the ownership can be transferred through an irrevocable power of attorney. In this article, we look at the guidelines for Jharkhand land mutation.


Mutating a property is a mandatory process in all legal transactions involving the property. Mutation becomes essential for deciding the tax liability when the property ownership gets changed. One needs to get mutation done and get the new owner details updated in the revenue records maintained by civic bodies like Municipalities, Panchayats or Municipal Corporations. Through mutation of land, a person can acquire the rights of the land.  To avoid the controversy over the ownership of the land, the mutation is worked out by both the parties, i.e. buyer and seller.
