  13. 13. WHAT IS THE REMEDY ?
  14. 14. Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Bill 2011 • Heightened public concern on Land Acquisition issues Public Concern • Absence of a national law to provide for the resettlement, rehabilitation and compensation for loss of livelihoods • While multiple amendments have been made to the Original Act, the principal law Outdated law continues to be the same i.e. The Land Acquisition Act of 1894 • Addressing concerns of farmers and those whose livelihoods are dependent on the land being acquired Need for Balance • While facilitating land acquisition for industrialisation, infrastructure and urbanisation

  20. 20. Comparative Evaluation of Land Acquisition andCompensation Processes across the World
  21. 21. Land Acquisition – Three Axes Method of compensation Process of Land AcquisitionPrinciple of Land Acquisition
  22. 22. Land Acquisition Principles – Public Purpose • Power and the terms under which it can be exercised is either directly vested in the constitution (US, Australia and China), or, is specified in enacted legislation (Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore) National Infrastructure Public benefit Purposes that Planning and UKChina Mexico Australia Singapore defence, development, or public the public transport, conservation of interest history or Parliament purposes if it water projects has the is suitable for, culture, national conservancy, security or power to and required government public benefit define by for agencies and projects, and legislation development so on projects that preserve the ecological balance and natural resources
  23. 23. Land Acquisition – Three Axes Method of compensation Process of Land AcquisitionPrinciple of Land Acquisition
  24. 24. Process of Land Acquisition Forcible • Mostly used in public purpose projects and procurement where the state don’t have enough option • Implementable when the land is not required for public purpose and if theProcurement through developing agency has more than one negotiation with option on which land parcel to acquire stakeholders • negotiation often leads to an economically efficient and socially optimal solutions• Cases where land acquisition is critical and for public purpose, countries such asJapan advocate the use of negotiation techniques in order to decide upon thecompensation to be provide to stakeholders• In Singapore and Philippines first negotiations are carried out, if it fails thencompulsory acquisition is done
  25. 25. Land Acquisition – Three Axes Method of compensation Process of Land AcquisitionPrinciple of Land Acquisition
  26. 26. Land Valuation Methods Evaluation of market value of the Evaluation of the net value of land income from the land Valuation MethodsDetermining original land use value Arriving at land values through as set by the state negotiation
  27. 27. Land Valuation MethodsEvaluation of market value of the land Evaluation of the net value of income from the• Malaysia, China, the US and India advocate landfollowing the comparable sales method •This method is used where market for land is not• Sales data on comparable tracts of land may developed or is not reliablenot be available • The value of the property is taken to be the value of• The registered value of the sale is kept the expected economic income that could be earnedartificially low for tax purposes through the ownership of the property• An open, reliable, fair market environment • Tanzania is one country where this method is used,might not be available primarily because the market is assumed to be inefficientDetermining original land use value as Arriving at land values through negotiationset by the state • Compensation is fixed purely on the basis of• The Land Act of China does not permit free discussions with stakeholderstransfer of rural land, the original use of land • Peru follows a policy of compensation basedis used for compensation purposes with strictly on negotiation with the affected partiesvaluation mechanisms set by the state • Singapore and Japan are other countries that• Problem in defining “Original use” endorse this approach• Assumption is that agricultural use is thehighest and best use of all rural land but ruralland may have other more profitable uses,such as residential, commercial or industrialdevelopment
  28. 28. Issues in Indian ContextVery little meaningful negotiation is undertaken The methods by which compensation is fixed are subjective and suboptimal No autonomy for officials to take independent productive decisions Delay in overall process leading to difficulty in many other aspects Corruption – The full compensations doesn’t reach the beneficiaries and delay in payment
  29. 29. Recommendations Acquire Surplus Land and Reallocate the Excess to Displaced People Post Development• Combats the resentment due to increase in the value of the land post-acquisition and development• Allows land owners to benefit from increase in land values• Example: Jaipur urban development and housing department Distribute Stocks and/or Options of Development Venture to Landowners• Includes displaced parties in the benefits accruing as a result of the venture• Provides additional income over fixed compensation• Example: Magarpatta City in Pune• Pitfall- shares do not provide instant relief to project affected parties Establish a Liberal, Competitive Framework to Reflect Market Realities• Identifies potential parcels of land• Negotiates with landowners to acquire some of these parcels• If a landowners wishes to retain the landholdings, move to the next parcel• Reduces transaction cost
  30. 30. Recommendations Uttar Pradesh’s Pragmatic Move• Government will act only as a facilitator if the developer is Private• Compensation + annuity of Rs.23,000 for 33 years, the right to 16 per cent of the developed land and shares in the project• Also job schemes for members of dispossessed families• Farmers have welcomed this policy Issue Government Orders to Circumvent Bottlenecks in the Land Acquisition Process• Imbibes public officials to sanction greater amount of compensation• Streamlines a consultative and equitable land acquisition process• Example: TNUDP projects in Tamil Nadu

  32. 32. A Successful Case of Land Acquisition: TNUDP Phase III Project Tamil Nadu Urban Development Phase III Project was funded by World Bank & coordinated by CMDA & DOHRW – Construction of 5 roads Project needed to acquire 40.12 acres affecting 2073 people Special NO COURT CASES deputyAcquisition Process collector Proper notification Base line survey Identification of affected people Issue of photo ID cards Local Negotiations Project Representati implementatCompensation ves committee ion Er. 142-150% of land value Building allowance : 25% of land of lane value Subsistence allowance: 1800/month*6 months Deputy Er., Shifting allowance: 1000/person Highways of Replacements Sub projects Delayed Payments: 12% Interest rate on the due
  33. 33. World Bank Mandate: Minimum of 150% of Compensation  The project officials argued that the other projects were offered lower compensation and it would be unfair to increase only for this project  The minimal value did not exceed beyond 150% Price of land < true market value the property Reason: The Tendency of landowners to record lower value of their sale of lands to save stamp duty The question arises here isWhether the true value to the owner was not provided due to the their lower record value ?? Yes but, the project-affected parties did not protest against the award since the process of award was open and transparent, and due to the apprehension that compensation awarded through the Land acquisition Act would be lower and would take longer to arrive The constitution of an independent negotiating committee, was helpful in solving issues and providing compensation for indirect losses as well as delayed payments
