Summary of Discussion on Draft National Land Reforms Policy  Overall Observations Pro-poor and Pro-women policy: Overall, the draft National Land Reforms Policy is pro-poor and pro-women. But three aspects in particular need further consideration: Women’s land rights; Tenancy; and Public Land Bank.  More focused towards rural land reforms: The ‘Draft National Land Reforms Policy’ seems to be skewed more on rural land reforms. Urban land issues are equally […]

Jairam Ramesh keen to bring Land Reforms Bill in Parliament

http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/jairam-ramesh-keen-to-bring-land-reforms-bill/1/150949.html Ashish Sinha New Delhi, September 12, 2011 | UPDATED 18:57 IST After introducing the land acquisition Bill in Parliament last week, Union Rural Development minister Jairam Ramesh now plans to address the vexed and sensitive issue of land reforms, including the revision of land ceiling limits, in a big way. In a radical move, the minister has proposed that ‘absentee landlords’ should own only half the quantum of land as compared to the ceiling fixed for normal landowners. “Absentee landlords and non-resident landowners may be clearly defined. This may be communicated to the states and Union Territories for consideration,” Ramesh has proposed. This recommendation, along with many others, would […]

‘Raigad votes against SEZ in referendum’

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/2008/09/23/stories/2008092352471000.htm Mumbai, Sept. 22 A majority of people in the 22 villages in Raigad district have voted against the SEZ in the referendum process which was held on Sunday, claimed Mr N.D. Patil, senior leader of Peasants and Workers Party of India, who is spearheading the agitation. The State Government is likely to announce the result of the referendum in next 15 days. The promoters of Maha Mumbai SEZ, which includes promoters of Reliance Industries Ltd, want to set up 10,000 hectares SEZ in the district. SEZ is expected to attract an investment of nearly Rs 40,000 crore and generate 20 lakh jobs. Mr Patil said that although the Maharashtra […]

Singur, Nandigram and Industrialisation of West Bengal-II

http://pd.cpim.org/2007/0128/01282007_nilotpal.htm Nilotpal Basu THE SEZ QUESTION AND NANDIGRAM There has been extensive coverage on the stand of the Left parties on the current SEZ policy of the government in these columns. The major areas of our disagreement with the extant policy pertain to nature of the land use, extent of land use, the tax package and the rehabilitation package. The design of the current package of the government has undergone a qualitative change when SEZ rules were framed under the Act and process of approvals which has led to sanctions being given to 237 SEZ proposals. This huge number immediately brings to the fore the contrast with China which had […]

The Question of Displacement and the Call for an United Battle

http://dsujnu.blogspot.com/2007/01/question-of-dis… The natural and legal rights of the people are being trampled on a scale unprecedented in post-1947 India. Successive governments at the centre would call this the needed drive for a New India marching forward in the 21st century as a major power. Development and Security are the twin needs of the Brave New World in which India and the sub-continent of South Asia is a vital cog. This development can only happen with the massive inflow of Foreign Direct Investment in the form of Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs), Foreign Institutional Investments (FII). Inequality has been considered as a necessary condition for mobilising savings and capital formation. To envisage […]

RURAL BENGAL'S PUZZLE: Villages consume very little although they are producing more

OMKAR GOSWAMI The Telegraph, 10 August 2004 There is a long-standing belief in West Bengal that agrarian reforms — which began with Operation Barga in the late Seventies — have raised agricultural productivity and rural incomes. The political adjunct of this economic tenet is that so long as agrarian Bengal does well, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) will continue to sweep the rural constituencies one election after the other. That there has been a statistically significant increase in agricultural productivity between the Seventies and the Nineties is well established. A recent example is the work of Abhijit Banerji of the Massachussetts Institute of Technology and his co-authors. They not […]
