2. There are three conditions that have to be prove by you and your mother before purchasing such agricultural lands.
3. However the limit is enhanced to Rs.25 lakhs with retrospective effect, the relevant notification/amendment is as follows:
The Legislative Assembly on Friday passed the Karnataka Land Reforms (Amendment) Bill, 2015, to increase the income limit for non-agricultural sources to purchase farmland from Rs. 2 lakh to Rs. 25 lakh.
The Bill empowers deputy commissioners of districts, instead of assistant commissioners, to grant permission for non-agriculturists to purchase agricultural land under Section 80 of the Act.
In reply to the debate on the Bill, Revenue Minister V. Srinivas Prasad said taking into account inflation, which was nearly 300 per cent in the last two decades, the maximum income limit was fixed at Rs. 25 lakh. Despite opposition from some quarters, it was decided to fix the limit to prevent misuse of farmland, he said.
Mr. Prasad said the last income limit revision was in 1995 when the former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda was the Chief Minister. Mr. Gowda increased the income limit from Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 2 lakh. In 1991, the income limit was increased from Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 50,000, Mr. Prasad said.
