 I dont think there can be any prohibition for creating a mortgage of agricultural lands. Nor any permission need to necessary.

Practically; many a time when approached to the bankers; they don't accept agricultural lands as security.

Mr. Surendra, the reasons could be many. One could be that you cannot proceed against such properties under SARFAESI Act

Banks never discourage Agriculture lands as security.  Though the same is excluded from the purview of SARFAESI Act for possession by the lender in case of default, there is statutory obligation on the part of nationalised banks to accept them as Prime as Collateral security to comply by the Priority Sector norms fixed.  No state can exclude Agricultural lands as security.

Of course Agricultural lands are accepted as Security only for loans granted for Agricultural activities as per Priority Sector Advances norms.

Banks/FI can not sell secured agricultural properties directly, under the SARFAESI Act.  But such properties can be sold by filing suits in civil courts or DRT
