Rectification of errors in Index 2 (Property Registration)

Index 2 is a summary of all the important information in a sale agreement. Errors can be corrected without a rectification deed.

Index 2 is a very important document whenever any transaction regarding purchase and sale of any property or real estate takes place in Maharashtra. It contains all the important details about the transaction in brief.

It contains important details like registration number, the office where it was registered, the date, time, Ready reckoner value, Details about the property, its area, address, buyer details, seller details etc.

Many a times, mistakes are made in this document while entering the data before registration or during registration (while entering data). This can be due to the error/mistake by the person entering the data in the registration office.

The most common mistake is the date of execution and date of registration…
The execution date is the date on which the document is signed by all the parties to the sale agreement/Sale deed.
The date of Registration is the date on which the parties visit the registration office and register the document, get their photographs taken and thumb imprints taken.

Index 2 explained

Often, even the people at the registration office are unaware of what is to be done once such a mistake has been detected. Even advocates are sometimes unaware of what is to be done. Most think that a rectification deed (new document) will have to be made specifying the mistake made in the index 2 and get it registered (just like the previous document). For this the parties will have to visit the registration office once again.

But this need not be done.

All that has to be done is to file a simple application with the registration office (where the document was registered) specifying the mistake made while entering data in the Index 2.

The format of the same in given below.

The entire process takes 4-6 months as the document is routed first to the District registrars office and then to NIC in Pune for update of records.

NOTE : This is only for correction in the Index 2 and not the agreement copy scanned into govt records. The details written in the agreement should match with what is entered in the Index 2. No changes can be made in the registered agreement except via a Rectification Deed.

  1. If there is incorrect data mentioned in index 2, in that case only rectification deed is fine or we have to correct index 2 as well?

    1. Rectification deed is enough. Although you need not have filed a rectification deed simply to correct a date in Index 2.
      But since you have done it, its enough.

  2. In my Index2, executed today, it incorrectly mentioned 985 sq. meter instead of 985 sq.foot in point 5 (Kshetrafal). My lawyer says a rectification deed is enough.

    Q1.Would this pose a problem in getting the property transferred to my name in the municipality?
    Q2.Also, would it be a problem in future if I have to sell the property.

    1. Rectification deed, if already done, is enough. Although it wasn’t necessary in the first place. A simple application would’ve been enough.
