Punjab Land Mutation

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

Once the property is mutated, such details will be updated in the revenue records maintained by civic bodies like Municipalities, Panchayat or Municipal Corporations.
