(Querist) 06 August 2014 This query is : Resolved 
Sir,

I am an NRI and interested in buying agricultural land in Maharashtra. However as per rules a non farmer cannot buy a agricultural land. I don't have any agricultural lands in father's or mother's name. My wife fathers has some agricultural land and his name is present on 7/12 extract along with his brothers name.
My wife's name is not on 7/12 extract.

My queries are as belows.

1. Can I buy agricultural land legally on my wife's name?

2. If so , Can she gift the agricultural land to me once i return to India?

3. If so , Can I buy second agricultural land if my wife's name has appeared on 7/12 extract of first purchase?

4. Any other legal ways of doing it?

5. My sister is married and she has farm land her name on 7/12 extract, will it be any use for me to buy agricultural land? Her name is added post marriage.


Looking for a detailed point wise clarifications and solution

Alternately you can buy agricultural land in Mahrashtra by making application for permission to buy agricultural land to Sub Division Officer/Collector the the district in which agricultural land is situated. Within three years of such purchase you have to start agricultural activities

You have been advised properly by experts, I endorse their views.

An other way is to buy agriland in states where there is no such prohibition is found and after that buy in Maharashtra.
