In India, land reform is currently a forgotten agenda. Immediately after India’s independence, the Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru promised to eliminate the intermediaries and restore land to the tiller resulting in the passing of historic Zamindari Abolition Act in 1956. Yet unfortunately, land has never became the core agenda of the successive governments despite various revolutionary steps through social movements.
