Is this ok if get this registered to eligible trustable person and take GPA, or do we have any better ways for this,
Thanks,

you cannot buy green belt land as you are non agriculturist . inorder to buy green belt land you must satisfy criterial laid down by karntaka land reforms act . admittedly you r income is more than Rs 10 lakhs . hence you cannaot buy agricultural land in karnataka 

To purchase land one should have agricultural land in his name or in the name of his family members from 1-03-1974 and their non agricultural annual income should not cross 2 lakhs.

Hi, Green belt is a area where you can't built residential or commercial activity like putting construction and formation of sites etc. for purchasing of an agricultural land by the non-agriculturist whose family income exceeds 2 lacks per year other than agricultural sources you can't buy a agricultural land it completely prohibits as per section 79(a) and 79(b) of Karnataka land reforms act. Here as long as the green belt area question of any commercial activity can't be done, until and unless that area has to be recognized as a yellow zone. so long a green belt area if you being a agriculturist you cant convert the land into non agricultural purpose.
