Land Pooling Method

What is Land Pooling Method?
  • Under land pooling mechanism, group of land-owners pool their land and hand it over to government agency for development of infrastructure projects.
  • After the development of land, the agency redistributes the land after deducting some portion as compensation towards infrastructure costs.
  • Generally, people who part with their land parcels get 60-70% of their holdings back after infrastructure is developed on it.
  • This is done to develop potential infrastructure to reduce the load on the existing congested and saturated areas.
  • This method already has been used in Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
Why this method is being adopted?
This is being done to overcome challenges that come with unavailability of land due to surge in land compensation cost after Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (or Land Acquisition Act, 2013) came in to force.
