Land purchase for fruit orchard in gujarat

Hi all,

I am an anglo-Indian of Sindhi-Vietnamese origin who was born and brought up in Ahmedabad.

I need to purchase land to set up an orchard and but not sure if I am entitled to buy agriculture land because of my origins.

I recently read that if a person is living in Gujarat then he/she can buy agricultural land for cultivation purposes? (Does growing an orchard qualify as cultivation?)

Is it possible to take the Private Limited Company route to purchase land for the above use?

An agriculturiest can only purchase agriculture land in gujarat. company can purchase agriculture land for bonafied industrial purpose only. I'll sugest you, you can cultivate agriculture land by forming a co-operative society & as co operative society you will entite to purchase agriculture land.

Hello Vinod,

I had a look into forest societies today and based on the research I have done online, the most likely society that I can register for is a Forest Society (Please correct me if I am wrong). One thing I do not understand however is that registering a co-operative society  would mean a non-profit organization of sorts whereas here, I am intending to purchase land for an orchard. Wouldn't this be a clash of interests?
