The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) or Floor Space Index (FSI) is the proportion of the aggregate floor zone of structures on a specific area to the extent of the place that is known for that area, or the cutoff forced on such a proportion. The Floor Area Ratio is the aggregate building square footage (building range) partitioned by the site estimate square footage (site area).As an equation: Floor Area Ratio = (Total secured region on all floors of all structures on a specific plot)/(Area of the plot) Thus, a FSI of 2.0 would demonstrate that the aggregate floor zone of a building is two times the gross zone of the plot on which it is developed, as would be found in a different story building

Super Built Up Area

This incorporates the shop/loft territory alongside the passageways or entries, lift wells, electrical and sterile conduits, stairways and fire getaway, regular ranges, for example, halls and the clubhouse. The space considered super developed is in actuality, the whole building including the thickness of dividers, galleries and all other basic luxuries, which are partitioned in extent to individual shops/loft. This changes from working to building. In the event that the building has more extensive halls and more conveniences, the super developed territory will be bigger.

Floor Covering Area

This is the genuine and physical useable range in the loft. It is the territory inside the four dividers of the loft, where you can lay a floor covering. It does exclude the divider thickness or any of the normal conveniences in the building.


It is a report readied as a major aspect of record-of-right in each income domain. It contains passages in regards to Ownership, development and forward of different rights in area. It is changed like clockwork when a Jamabandi is set up by Patwari and confirmed by Revenue Officer. Two duplicates of updated Jamabandi are readied. One duplicate is relegated to the District Record Room and other duplicate stays with Patwari for the cash of the Settlement, assumption of truth is appended to the passages in the Jamabandi under area 44 of Punjab Land Revenue Act, 1887. All progressions of rights in area going to the notification of the Revenue Agency are reflected in the Jamabandi as indicated by a set methodology after these have been checked by Revenue Officer.

Transformation Register

Transformation shows the progressions that must be realized in possession and title of the area. It contains the data about the khewat of last Jamabandi, which are proposed to be amended (Column No 1 to 7) and data contained in Column no 8 to 12 is proposed to be built up. These segments are plain as day. Column no 13 shows the sorts of transformation and its points of interest. Change charge is entered in segment no 14 and brief report is given in section no 15. Referencing of changes are made in current Jamabandi in Remarks Column. At a given purpose of time, section no 8-12 can be taken as segment of Jamabandi and affirm the title of the area. There are numerous sorts of transformations yet the principle sorts incorporates Sale, Gift, Mortgage with Possession, Mortgage without ownership, trade, Mutation of changes in proprietorship in view of common court orders, transformation of legacy, segment, land term leases, reclamation of home loan.

Khasra Girdawari

It is a register of harvest reviews. The patwari conducts field to handle harvest assessments at regular intervals in the month of October and March. He records actualities in regards to trim developed, soil order, development and limit of the cultivators. This is important information and is premise for some profits and figures arranged and distributed by Director, Land Records, Haryana. The record is held in care of patwari for a time of 12 years after which it is additionally to be recovered from him and wrecked. The initial six month to month examinations beginning from first of October is called Kharif Girdawari while second from Ist of March called Rabi Girdwari. On the off chance that circumstances so required, diverse dates in this admiration can be settled by Commissioner of the Divisions for any or all regions under their charge. Also, if there should arise an occurrence of additional Rabi products, for example, melons and tobacco and so on which can not be seen in March, the patwari make an additional investigation called 'Zaid Rabi Girdawari' in appreciation of such fields. Now and again, comparable Zaid Kharif Inspection is likewise done.

Khewat Number

The Khewat number typically alluded as 'KHATA NUMBER' by income authorities is the record number given to owner(s) which shape an arrangement of co-sharers who claim the area in same or distinctive extents. It in this manner, can be comprehended as the record number given to different proprietors in the Khewat. The Khewat number in the Jamabandi runs consecutively beginning from 1 to N. The Khewat Number may get changed in the following Jamabandi because of revisions i.e. same proprietors who were proprietors in some Khewat prior may get another Khewat number in next Jamabandi. To clear up the things further, let us expect that there are 10 Khewats in a town and proprietors A, B and C were prior in responsibility for Khewat 5 and did a few exchanges to a man say X who might be a proprietor in this town as of now or may show up in the Shajra and Jamabandi of the town because of this exchange interestingly. Presently because of mutation(s), the facts may confirm that proprietors in Khewat number 5 sold complete area to X. In the event that finish Khewat is sold and proprietor "X" as of now exists in the town, then all the area will move to Khewat that has a place with X. On the off chance that proprietor "X" is another proprietor and was not there in the Jamabandi prior, then amid transformation passage Khewat number 5 will stop to exist and rather Khewat number 5/1 will be given to 'X'. Amid definite revamp/sequencing of Khewat number, then the reality of the situation may prove that relying on the station/sub-position of the Owner "X" now Khewat number 5/1 (Khewat made from 5) may get another number. The game plan, which has been appeared above is a basic one with the end goal of seeing however in genuine circumstances it might be more confused one relying on the nature and sort of transformations occurring in the town. You may say if above is the situation then what is the best approach to know the Khewat of proprietors in the past Jamabandi. This can be known with the assistance of Khewat number composed with red ink (in automated print it is appeared as underlined) underneath the current Khewat number. On the off chance that you see Khewat number 6 (in clear ink) and underneath that Khewat a number say 5 is composed in red-ink, then you can just accept that present proprietors of Khewat number 6 in the current Jamabandi were proprietors in Khewat number 5 in the past Jamabandi. In some cases, a denominator is connected to a Khewat number too. This happens due to the way that amid the composition of Jamabandi and course of action of Khewat numbers, a Khewat is left incidentally and must be embedded in the middle. For instance however there were 10 Khewats and Patwari attempted composed the points of interest for 10 Khewat in arrangement in a steady progression yet neglected to say a Khewat in the middle. Such Khewat if is to be embedded after Khewat 6 will be given number 6/1 or if is to be embedded after 8 will be given number 8/1. Despite the fact that this routine of composing Khewat number isn't right yet there is no prompt arrangement accessible. An office has been given to enter such Khewats likewise by giving extra field i.e. bata (denominator) for such Khewat number. Be that as it may, after the changes, once another Jamabandi is readied, such denominators won't be permitted. Above is valid if there should arise an occurrence of khatoni number too. Be that as it may, for denominator of Khasra, there is particular significance and it has been clarified in the area 2.4 'Khasra Number'.

Khatoni Number

As Khewat number alludes to an arrangement of proprietors, khatoni number alludes to an arrangement of cultivators in the same sense. This khatoni number is given to the cultivators in the Khewat and runs consecutively in the town beginning from 1 to N. Each Khewat will have no less than one khatoni or more khatonies yet will show up in a grouping inside the Khewat and in the town. The Khatoni number if in one sense demonstrates the cultivators then in another sense will indicate who are the persons who have the ownership of the Khatoni comprising of different Khasras in the Khewat. In still another sense it additionally demonstrates who are the persons who are proprietors of different khasras in the khatoni. Similarly as if there should be an occurrence of Khewat where proprietor may offer, blessing or home loan, same sort of exchange additionally happens in the Khatoni too. Prior to the things begin confounding you, the case appeared beneath would help you to comprehend this issue. Say, A, B and C are proprietors in Khewat number 5 and this Khewat has three Khatonies number 5, 6 and 7. In Khatoni number 5, it is composed 'Kast Va Kabja Swayam' and has got three khasras. At that point this implies these three khasra are by and large had and developed by all the three proprietors specified in Col.4 i.e. Proprietors Details of Jamabandi. In the following khatoni i.e. Khatoni number 6 which say has one khasra and it is composed 'A, B, C Hissadar Baya X Mustari Kast Va Kabja Swayam Mustari'. This portrayal implies that the Khasra in the khatoni number 6 has been sold by all the three proprietors all things considered i.e. A, B and C to X who is the proprietor in 'Khana Kast'. This is a direct result of the way that proprietors A, B and C have sold a specific khasra number to X and X will be appeared in khatoni number 6 as purchaser and ownership is additionally with X i.e. the buyer. The buyer won't get any Khewat number for the reason that khasra sold was before under the ownership with all the three proprietors. Buyer X will get another Khewat just when this Khewat number gets partitioned and shares are worked out based upon the region possessed by every proprietor. Underneath the khatoni number, another number is composed (underlined in modernized print) in red ink in the physically composed Jamabandi) which demonstrates the Khatoni number of current Khatoni in the past Jamabandi. In the physically composed Jamabandi this number is not appeared. Yet, once the transformations happen through this product and Khatonies are adjusted, then under every current Khatoni number, old Khatoni number would be appeared as underlined. As clarified under segment 2.2, that in the physically composed Jamabandi, once in awhile a bata (denominator) is added to demonstrate the Khewat embedded in the middle. It is likewise valid if there should arise an occurrence of Khatoni.

Khasra Number

The Khasra number is only a plot number given to a particular land parcel in the town. Same path as one or more Khatonies structure a Khewat, likewise one or more Khasra structure a khatoni. The Khasra numbers in a khatoni might possibly be specified successively and once a khasra number has showed up in a khatoni, it can not figure in another Khatoni with the exception of for the situation if the Khasra is 'Min'. Be that as it may, in the event that it is min then it can not rehash in the same Khatoni. The Khasra numbers in a town are made once settlement of town begins. The settlement authorities take town all in all and on its guide begin from North East and offer number to every single plot in every bearing and reach to North East heading again in the wake of offering number to every plot in every one of the bearings. Khasra number may get partitioned because of offer, blessing and so forth amid the transformation and is given another number with denominator. For instance, on account of transformation, Khasra number 100 is isolated into two sections then amid change two divisions of this khasra i.e. 100/1 and 100/2 will be made and exchange happens. When every one of the transformations have occurred the revamp of Khasra i.e. numbering is finished by Patwari. How this renumbering/adjustment is done is clarified underneath: Say in the town just 499 Khasras were there in the past Jamabandi and two new khasra divisions i.e. 100/1 and 100/2 were made because of transformation. Amid rearrangement, Khasra number 100/1 will get number 500/100 and 100/2 will get Khasra number 501/100 and khasra number 100 will stop to exists i.e. the last Khasra number is increased by one (that is 499 now get to be 500 and 501) and in the denominator Khasra number out of which the Khasra is framed is connected. This will be the situation for all the Khasra divisions. New Khasra number era considers the chief of 'First-In First-Out (FIFO)' that is Khasra which got isolated because of transformation number 5 will have priority in getting new number over the khasra number which has been partitioned because of change number 10. To make the things assist clear, let us say that khasra 100 was partitioned because of change number 5 and Khasra number 45 was separated into two sections (i.e. 45/1 and 45/2) because of change number 10. At that point once the transformations are over and revision of Khasra is embraced, then new Khasra numbers are created based upon the essential of 'FIFO'. Assume last khasra in past Jamabandi was 499 then new Khasra number will be 500/100, 501/100 (for khasra number 100) and 502/45 and 503/45 (For Khasra Number 45). So the case illuminates however the khasra number 45 is a number less than Khasra number 100 yet Khasra numbers created out of 45 because of transformation number 10 will get next i.e. higher numbers.

Min and Salam

Over the span of the execution of Land Records Computerisation programming you will frequently see the term Min/Saalam (feu/lkye) perpetually. The "Min" implies halfway and "Saalam" implies totally. In the event that min is specified against an old Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra number then you can expect that the Khewat/khatoni/khasra under thought is cut/framed out of the old Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra halfway or exchange is occurring incompletely. "Salam" word alludes to the way that new Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra is shaped out of the old Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra when same was executed totally. In the event that the Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra is shaped because of min exchange, then you will see "Min" other than the Khewat/Khatoni/Khasra. On the off chance that nothing is said then you can exceptionally well expect that the Khewat/khatoni/khasra is 'Salam', as a matter of course.


The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) or Floor Space Index (FSI) is the ratio of the total floor area of buildings on a certain location to the size of the land of that location, or the limit imposed on such a ratio. The Floor Area Ratio is the total building square footage (building area) divided by the site size square footage (site area).As a formula: Floor Area Ratio = (Total covered area on all floors of all buildings on a certain plot)/(Area of the plot) Thus, an FSI of 2.0 would indicate that the total floor area of a building is two times the gross area of the plot on which it is constructed, as would be found in a multiple-story building.

Units of Measurement
Standard Classification adopted for AREA UNIT/EXTENT with digital coding scheme.

Recommendation: In existing Land Record databases, attribute "area" is used to capture information about the area of a land parcel. Different traditional units like Kanal, Marla, Cents, Guntas, Bigha, Biswa, Biswansi, Sarsaai are used for recording the area of a land parcel. Area units are different within the state and sometimes same unit may have different conversion factors when used in different states. For example, Bigha is used in practice in both Assam and also in some states like Delhi, Rajasthan, Haryana etc. Both the Bigha units have different conversion factors to hectares. At present, it is represented as a numeric data type up to three decimal places. It is now recommended to have the area only in Metric Units as depicted in Table 1. The various area units in practice in land records are shown in Table 2. Conversion factors are locally available from different unit to metric system and it is depicted in Table 4. The area conversion service is available in the website under revenue village directory.
