Re: [IAC#RG] IAC position on Land Acquisition Amendment Bill

Dear Sarabjit.
Based on my humble rural background and my two year research on rural poverty, I will be happy to participate in any discussion or presentation on the issue. I am of the firm view that agriculture and animal related activity is insufficient to support the rural population of India and in order to stop migration of rural  poor to urban slums  jobs have to be created in what is presently rural area through industrialization and infrastructure development in rural and rurban areas. For this to happen planned industrial  and population centres need to be created and land needs to be made available for this purpose at suitable locations. Land owners agreement to the extent of 80% is neither practicable nor efficient.

Having said that , it is essential that land acquired by governments must not be doled out to industry or colonizers in an unfair and arbitrary manner .

Subject: [IAC#RG] IAC position on Land Acquisition Amendment Bill

Dear members

Seeing as how several members are interested in farming / agricultural
matters and have first-hand expertise on the subject, IAC may consider
participation in any  Parliamentary sub/committee public consultation
process on Land Acquisition Amendment Bill, if it happens.

Interested members may email me off-list indicating their interest,
including appearing before the sub/Committee at New Delhi if so
required on behalf of IAC.
