There are many users complaining that VAO and Surveyor asks for anywhere between Rs.3000 to Rs.6000 bribe to change Patta name for single land doc.

But there are ways you can follow to avoid those bribe and get your patta name transferred without giving any single rupee.

Once you’ve submitted Patta Transfer request document in Tasildhar office, wait for 30 days, and if you haven’t got any response from Surveyor or VAO, file an RTI asking for the status of the name change.

Don’t forgot to mention your Application number as provided in the document you got from e sevai maiyam.

If you want, we can upload a sample document which you can use to write an RTI application.

Another way is if VAO still adamant in getting money for the work, inform vigilance and get him arrested :)
