Enabling the Great Goan Land Grab
Economic and Political Weekly
The Goa Requisition and Acquisition of Property Bill, 2017 and the Goa Compensation to the Project Affected Persons and Vesting of Land in the Government Bill, 2017 are the latest additions to the state government’s arsenal of legal tools to facilitate acquisition and conversion of land within the state, while insulating itself from any consequence of “environmental justice.” This follows a national trend of deploying legal language and institutions to support an aggressive approach towards appropriation of land assets.
