Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation in IndiaFast economic growth in India in the last two decades has increased demand for land from many sources, such as infrastructure, industry, mining, and urbanisation, including real estate. Even when many of these activities are funded privately and are driven by profit motive, they serve a social purpose - as employment generation per unit of land is higher in non-agricultural uses than in agriculture. Growth through industrialisation and urbanisation would not only increase labour productivity but will also reduce pressure on farm land by pulling people away from land to non-farming occupations. However, acquisition of land by government has lately drawn resistance in many cases due to inadequate and uncertain compensation for the land, loss of livelihood of the affected people and involuntary displacement without proper rehabilitation. The colonial land acquisition law of 1894 that is still in vogue has been quite hostile to the interests of the landowner, as it attempts to make land available to government at a minimal price. So far the practice in most state governments has been to coerce people to give up their pieces of land by us
