Agricultural land can be bought in Gujarat after fulfilling certain requirements. These include: The annual average income of the person including agricultural income should be less than Rs. 2Lakhs. The person must have had an agricultural land in his name before the year 1974. The person should be an agriculturist or an agricultural worker by profession.As per Section 79A of the Land Reforms Act 1961, the non-agricultural income of a purchaser who must be an agriculturist should not exceed Rs. 2 Lakhs per year. Sale of land granted to members of scheduled caste and tribe is not allowed.

Sir, since your father owns the land and you will be his heir, you can request him to put your name in the will and your name will be added as owner after he is no more.

In case you want it added while he is alive, you can still do so as a farmer family can still transfer the land to the legal family members.

The sub-registrar checks all the conditions as correctly pointed out by the advocate above  when the land is purchased and sold.

If the conditions were to be used for existing farmers, then all farmers in Gujarat would remain poor as they cannot earn more than Rs. 2 lakhs and if they earn more than that then they have to stop being a farmer. You may consult  local advocate who may know better.
