• Can NRI purchase agricultural land?

Online research seems to indicate that NRIs are not allowed to purchase agricultural land in India except with some special permissions form RBI, but we find real estate agents in the state tell us that there are no such legal restrictions. We are looking for someone who can help us with executing a specific transaction of acquiring farmland in Andhra Pradesh and educate us on all the nuances thereof. For instance, if one is not allowed to acquire agricultural land as a NRI, can one do so if he will be moving back to India in the near future?
