The consequence of this title deed is that the land cannot be transferred. However, the physical ownership can be transferred to any other individual. The individual will have to apply for a new certificate of ownership.

2.) Nor sor 3 kor/ Showed certificate of use

This title deed implies that all requirements for a title deed issuance were complied with and is pending in the land department. It confirms the person’s right to use the land. This type of title deed allows the holder to sell, lease or use the land as collateral.
