A land which is acquired by the government
by compensating the owner of such land for
any losses as per the law for a purpose is
An Act to permit the government to acquire
any private land in India called as The Land
Acquisition Act was enacted in 1894, more
than a century ago, which has drawn
criticism- for being outdated and flak for this
being weak and also an act which is not
In spite of an agitation by the farmers, Rural
Development Minister, Jairam Ramesh went
ahead to replace this outdated Land Acquisition
Act with an upgraded one. The protest of
the farmers was to raise their voice against
the less compensation in lieu of the land
The new version of the Bill provided relief
measures and also a rehabilitation, absent in
the earlier version.
Private organizations are deemed to take
care of the rehabilitation and further resettle
on land acquired privately or on the
Government’s intervention to acquire the
said land on behalf of them to the tune of
either 100 acres if urban, or 50 acres if rural.
The difference between the earlier draft and
the bill is to be taken notice of since, the
earlier one recommended a compensation of
6 times the rate in the market, but the bill
says 4 times.
As per the draft, if such purchased land lies without being used for a period of more than
10 years, then it was directed to be returned
to the owner who sold it, whereas, the Bill
says that the government shall be the rightful
owner in spite of the purchased land remains
unused for the purpose mentioned.
The draft had barred acquiring land meant
for irrigation of various crops, but the Bill
allows up to 5% of irrigated land on the condition
that the same number of waste or dry
land is developed for cultivation in the
This Land Acquisition Bill applies to cases
where the government acquires and uses for
its use exclusively. This could include
defense or any other construction it deems fit
for National purpose. Consent is not a necessity.
Whereas, 80% of those who are affected
by the acquisition, will have to give their
consent if the land acquired is more than 100
If the ownership of the land is transferred or
sold before any development taking place,
then the Bill says that 20% will have to be
distributed out of the profit thus earned, to
the people concerned.
A cross section of the industries are skeptical
of the Bill since it is felt that it would be
difficult to put it in practice specifically,
Rehabilitation and Resettlement.
