Dear Aditya,

you can not buy land in Gujarat as Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act,1948 prohibits any person who is not an 'agriculturist' within the meaning of the Act to purchase the Agricultural land in Gujarat. Though certain judgements of the Bombay High Court allow agriculturists of other states to buy land in Maharashtra however the same is not allowed in Gujarat. You will have to apply to District Collector for permission under section 65 and 43 of the above stated act before purchase of agricultural land in Gujarat. However, the permission is practically rarely granted by the Collectors. In absence of any such permission proceedings u/s 84/C of the Act shall be initiated against you and ultimately the land would vest in the orignal land owner and if he refuses than the land would vest in the Government. Therefore only buy non-agricultural land in Gujarat.

If the seller is a farmer who has illegally become a farmer and if his land is purchased by any other person who is a genuine farmer then the sale would be valid. However if there are any proceedings against the seller pertaining to his status as a farmer then the sale would be subject to the outcome of such proceedings and there would be risk for such purchaser. The Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948 (as applicable to Gujarat) by Gupte (Published by Hind Law Publications, 28-B, Budhvar Peth Pune-2 ) is a decent book.

Hi you all people there, I have one question, if you can help me out about that then it will be great as well.

My friend is having one land,  but it has been inherited from this father and he recently got know that they are final owner of that land, but some other people already occupied that and using that land for agriculture in north Gujarat since long time, legally my friend is having documents ready like all required papers, then in this case what will be chances of my friend to get that land back from people who occupied that since long time,

I heard that in real estate possession is the big thing, so what he has to do in that.


Can anyone advice a bit about that, it will be really useful.

As per constitution by place of birth, no one is discriminated. Also, as per constitution agriculturist from any state can buy agricultural land in any other state for agricultural purpose except J&K. Now, I understand that, bureaucrats from Gujarat State are wrongly interpreting the Land Act and rules applicable within Gujarat State. As per various orders passed by them, I understand that, they are interpreting that, Agriculturist from other state or having agricultural land from fore-father in other state are not agriculturist within Gujarat State. The said action is ultra virus to our Great Constitution.

Still, if we are wrong to interpret or to understand then we are ready to correct our selves.
