document may apply for building plan approval, trade permits, building licenses, and

bank loans for their property.

violates government regulations. The property which is listed under B Khata will be

denied loans, denied of construction, and extension permits. furthermore, since the

property is classified as illegal or semi-legal, it cannot be sold. Moreover, obtaining

electricity and water for a B Khata property is extremely difficult. B Khata property can

be transformed to A Khata by paying betterment fees.
