Land Acquisiton Bill

After the passing of land acquistion bill by central govt their is a huge protest all over the country . The anti corruption activist Anna felt the need of protesting . He said it is against the public interest and mainly poor farmers . Let us know the disadvantages of the Bill . The major problems in land acquisition today include the following: 1. Profiteering by private interests taking advantage of government acquisition (e.g. NOIDA, Bhatta Parsaul); 2. Non-existent or inadequate rehabilitation and compensation for displaced people; 3. Affected people have no recourse for enforcing their rights, which are often ignored both during land takeover (e.g. POSCO) and during rehabilitation; 4. As the central cause for all of the above, a decision- making process that is totally controlled by government officials, with no democratic or public involvement.
