Everything you need to know about purchasing agricultural land in Karnataka.

Non-farming land can be purchased in Karnataka by Indian nationals and non-resident Indians (NRIs). When it prior to buying agricultural land, meanwhile, there are a number of restrictions. Prior to 2015, the only person who can buy agricultural land was a peasant from the Karnataka state who had a farming background and owned agricultural property.

In Karnataka, non-agriculturists are those who don’t have any agricultural land and make more than two lakhs a year from non-agricultural businesses. As a result, until 2015, a non-agriculturist could not buy agricultural land in Karnataka.

In 2020, Karnataka repealed a decades-old law that prohibited non-agriculturalists from buying and selling agricultural land. In Karnataka, there are no longer any restrictions on who can own farmland, including non-agriculturally designed to establish, businesses, or academic institutions in India. Regardless of their familial background, anyone with maximum non-agricultural earnings of 25 lakhs per year is legally allowed to acquire agricultural property. The income level was raised from Rs 2 lakh to Rs 25 lakh in June 2015.

ADDA has grown from a private social media network and helpline for walled compounds to an online marketplace. Non-agriculturalists can be granted agricultural property ownership by the District Commissioner.

Due to Karnataka’s limitations, numerous high-net-worth individuals purchased property in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Many residents in and around the Anekal region possess city property due to Tamil Nadu’s pro-farming laws and closeness to Bengaluru.
