The Land Acquisition Act, 1894 is a British era law[1] that governed the process of land acquisition in India until 2013 and continues to do so in Pakistan and Myanmar.[2] It allows the acquisition of land for some public purpose by a government agency from individual landowners after paying a government-determined compensation to cover losses incurred by landowners from surrendering their land to the agency. In India, a new Act, The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013, replaced this Raj law.[3]
