Land Acquesition 1894

The Land Acquisition Act1894

The Land Acquisition Act, 1894 is a law in India and Pakistan that allows the government to acquire private land in those countries. “Land Acquisition” literally means the acquisition of land for some public purpose by a government agency from individual landowners, as authorised by the law, after paying a government-fixed compensation to cover losses incurred by landowners from surrendering their land to the concerned government agency. In India, a new Act, [The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013]] was passed by the Parliament in 2013 to repeal this Act.
