Whether individual/company can purchase the agricultural land for non agricultural purpose without taking prior N.A. permission, by simply paying n.a. stamp duty. Or whether the permission u/sec.63 of B.T.A.L. Act is required.

in my opinion, merely giving n.a. stamp duty on land, dosen,t convert land use.
