Karnataka govt implements amended Land Reforms Act 1961
Industries will still need to seek permission from the Revenue Department
The Karnataka government has implemented the amended Land Reforms Act, 1961, which allows industries to buy land directly from farmers.
The industries will still need to seek permission from the Revenue Department.
However, it will be deemed approved if the deputy commissioner doesn’t raise red flags or clear the application within 30 days.
Earlier, industries could get agricultural land allotted only through government agencies.
The amendment was notified after the Karnataka governor approved the Karnataka Land Reforms (Amendment) Bill 2020 that had been approved by the legislature in March 2020.
