The survey will commence on August 16 and aims to ascertain the ownership of tenements, plinth sites, and bare sites within these colonies. It will continue till October-end.
During this survey, the field staff of the Estate Office will carry out a physical examination to determine ownership details.

The documents needed for present occupant’s identity and address proof are a slip, allotment letter received at the time of allocation, copies of GPA/SPA/ATS/will and any other conveyance/document that establishes linkage with the original allottee.

According to the Chandigarh estate office, this survey aims to ensure accuracy and transparency in property ownership records within the rehabilitation colonies. “The cooperation of all residents is crucial to the success of this endeavour. It is anticipated that this initiative will help streamline the property records of these colonies,” it was stated.
