RTC basically is a record of rights, tenancy and crops for agricultural lands. If the land is agricultural in nature then for every year there will be record of the crop grown, the name of the owner of the land, survey number, extent of land etc. RTC's will never reflect Site Numbers they only reflect survey numbers. In case the land has been converted then you would get a Nil RTC which basically means that there would be no record of the crop grown for that period and there will also be an endorsement recording the extract number wherein the conversion of landuse from agricultural to non-agricultural usage has been done. If the land is unconverted land it is advisable not to but the property.

The 7x12 property card or extract can easily show the LAND status. You can confirm the same at the office of the Tahsildar or on the ONLINE website of Revenue Department. Agriculturists are the only ones who can purchase agricultural land.
