The Karnataka Legislative Assembly passed a land reforms bill Friday to make it easier to divert agricultural land for commercial and industrial purposes while also introducing a 10-year deadline for industries to use land awarded to them following conversion of agricultural land.
The Karnataka Land Reforms and Certain Other Law (Amendment ) Bill, 2014, introduced in the Legislative Assembly by Revenue Minister Srinivas Prasad, modified sections of the Karnataka Land Reforms Act, 1961 and the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964 which mandated two separate permissions for diverting agricultural land for non-agricultural purposes.
The Congress government has now modified section 109 of the Karnataka Land Reforms Act, 1961 in such a manner that permission granted to acquire land for non-agricultural purposes under the law can also be deemed as a clearance given under section 95 of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964.

“Once the permission under section 109 of the Karnataka Land Reform Act, 1961 is taken the permission under section 95 of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964 is deemed to have been taken as the procedure under the two enactments is similar but is time consuming as separate permission has to be taken under each enactment which results in undue delay,’’ the government has stated.
Once the bill becomes an Act, industries and organisations will no longer have to stand in line for clearances to use agricultural land for commercial purposes under the Karnataka Land Revenue Act if the government clears the purchase of the agricultural land under the Karnataka Land Reforms Act.
