BENGALURU: Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Saturday said proposed amendments to the Land Reforms Act will help farmers and an ordinance will be issued for its implementation. The state cabinet had decided to amend the Act to permit non-agriculturists to purchase farm land and to double the ceiling on land holdings. “The proposed changes will help farmers.

We will discuss it with Siddaramaiah and convince him,” the CM said, responding to the Congress’ opposition to the changes. It will also help the state attract investments, the CM said, adding that the proposed changes will not be permitted to be misused. The Congress had alleged that the amendments would allow corporate houses and land mafia to grab land from small farmers.
