Cadastral Survey refers to the three property or revenue surveys of Bombay conducted by the British under Thomas Dickinson (1811-1827), George Laughton (1865-1872) and during World War I (1915-1918) and the later one conducted during the 1963-67.

Through these surveys Property Registration Card(PRC) were issued for individual plots which were assigned a number known as CTS Number. The PRCs contained details like Village, Taluka, CTS Number, Area of the plot, Tenure, Assessment or rent paid to the government authority, details of the holder in origin of the title and the transactions carried on thereafter.
