Gujarat Government Amending Educational Rental Laws
AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat government announced on Friday that the district collector’s permission will not be required to purchase agricultural land to build educational facilities.

Prime Minister Vijay Rupani has approved a proposed amendment to Gujarat’s Lease and Agricultural Land Act so that non-agricultural individuals and businesses can easily buy agricultural land to set up educational facilities, a government release said Friday.

At present, the collector’s permission is required for these individuals or organizations to purchase agricultural land for such purposes.

The proposed change will apply to the establishment of a “university of agriculture, animal husbandry, medicine, college of engineering and other educational institutions,” the press release said.

The opposition congress criticized the proposal.

“The only goal of the BJP government is to destroy agriculture and farmers and to help their favorite business houses. Before that, they gave government and gauchar land to industrialists.

“Now the rental law is being changed to once again help BJP supporters acquire valuable land,” said Manish Doshi, spokesman for the Gujarat Congress.

“BJP’s own people are going to buy this land and build self-funded colleges and private universities with huge fees,” he said.
