Buying agricultural land in Karnataka


I am planning to buy a agricultural land here in Mangalore,karnataka but I am not a agriculturist nor any one from my family is.  I have no intention of converting the land to residential or something else. 

Basically plan to generate revenue from agriculture(banana, cashew, coconuts etc etc ). May be a small income initially but i think it would work well in future. 

  I know as per rules in karnataka its not possible, if i am not an agriculturist. Let me know what can i do to be eligible or ways to still buy the land for agriculture. 

I would be needing loan as well which I would pay off from my salary from my current job.

You can take it in some others name and keep yourself as gaurantoor for loan and buy the land at the most. or you buy the land in any of your relative far relative you is an agriculturist. This can be one of the ways

Under existing Karnataka Land Reforms Act, a person who is not a agriculturist and the income from non-agriculture sources is more than Rs.2 lakhs of the family, cannot purchase agrl. Lands. However you can buy land after obtaining necessary permission from jurisdictional Asst. Commissioner.
