NEW DELHI: An expert committee set up by Niti Aayog on agricultural land leasing has suggested models that would legalise land leasing  of the agriculture land to promote agriculture efficiency, equity, occupational mobility and rapid rural transformation.

The committee has suggested that crop insurance benefit should go to the tiller or whoever has taken the land on lease and not the land owner. Further after completion of the lease agreement the land ownership will automatically revert back to the owner, sources in the committee said, that was headed by T Haque former chairman of Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP).

Niti Aayog is expected to soon take a final view and make its recommendation, after which the states will have the freedom to implement them.

The committee is also silent in its report, if the foreign individuals could take land on lease, as in African countries, said sources.
