Suggestion for Land Acquisition Act
The farmers are being told that Government is going to acquire their land without their consent by passing this bill. Most of the farmers do not know the plus points of the bill so they are being misguided by the opposition leaders. Therefore I would like to suggest the following:
1. As the bill is connected directly to the farmers land, the need and benefits of the bill should be communicated to the maximum public through TV advertisements, Social media, Radio Mann ki Baat, Newspapers and through party workers as done in case of elections.
2. Then the farmers should be asked to give the voluntarily consent of approval for their land acquisition for development purposes. I am sure most of the farmers will register for that, considering the four times market value and other benefits.
3. After that, The Govt. and the Businessmen will have the data of available land for the planning of the development projects. The voluntarily consent of approval for the land acquisition should be a continuous process. I am sure within a time of few months every area will be having more than 80% volunteers. The 20 % left out areas can be acquired by Govt. as per the existing Land Acquisition Act for development projects.
This is going to be a win-win situation for all. more
I appreciate yr feeling. But 2 me I would rather request God to make Adanis/Ambanis better sense prevail, then Modi will automatically stop snatching poor farmers(producing 3 crops a year) farm land through ordinance.

Farmers are ever ready not only to sell their land, but even to donate their land free of any charge for such good causes. more
