Possession and acquisition of land is pivotal for taking up various schemes by any development authority. Implementation of housing, commercial and infrastructural development projects largely depends on the extent of land in the possession of the authority or the implementing agency.

Since the availability of Govt. land in prime localities in the development authority area is being minimized, new citizen-friendly methods for acquiring land are being contemplated for implementation of various schemes.
