This query is : Resolved 

29 July 2009

Hi everyone,
i require your views on following

Most of our clients offer equitable mortgage of agricultural lands as security for commercial loans
as per section 31 (i) of SARFESI Act the proceedings under the act cannot be initialized on "Agricultural Land".

My query is whether security created on equitable mortgage of agricultural land can be realized by bank under any circumstances? If yes, Which act governs the same and What is the procedure in this regard?

Any specific act applicable on state of Punjab, Harayana & Gujarat will be helpfull.

Thank you
