Land for “Development”

by: Vidya Bhushan Rawat

Consent remains the most important part of democracy and all the land conflicts world over happens because of denial of it to those who get affected by a project hence it becomes essential for peacebuilding as well as strengthening democracy. Land essentially is a state subject in India and therefore state laws and the consent parts in them should be understood in all the right perspective. The importance of this volume is that it consists of not just activists who have been working on the issue for long but some of them have also been engaged in academic exercise. This book is about India and its land laws. The bone of contention was to remove the consent clause as it was becoming an ‘obstacle’ for those who wish to acquire people’s land in the name of ‘National Interest’.
