• Buy agricultural land

Sir I want to buy agriculture land in dehradun ...what is the land act for other state buyers...
Asked 3 years ago in Property Law from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh
The Uttarakhand High Court on September 22, 2011 struck down the much-contentious land reforms in the state under which outsiders were prohibited to buy more than 250 square meters of agriculture land.

A division bench of Chief Justice Barin Ghosh and Justice U C Dhyani said all the citizens of the country would now be able to purchase up to 12.5 acres of agriculture land in the state under the Land Ceiling Act.

Following this judgment any person who is a citizen of India can purchase 12.5 acres of agricultural land in Uttarakhand which is also the permissible limit under the Land Ceilings Act.

1. You can buy agricultural land up the ceiling of 12.5 acres as per the Land ceiling Act,

2. Make sure that there is no restriction for non-agriculturists buying agriculral land at Uttarakhand like some other states.
