Ask an infrastructure developer what is the single biggest constraint to speedy execution of infrastructure projects and he or she will answer: ‘land’. Indeed, an official review of projects that have been delayed indicates that 70 percent of the 190 delayed projects are on account of land acquisition problems. The study shows that 60 projects being implemented by the Indian Railways (IR), 40 by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), and 28 power projects across the country are facing difficulties in acquiring land. This view is corroborated by an Infrastructure Outlook Survey conducted by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) which has revealed that amongst the factors responsible for delays in project implementation, land acquisition continues to be the top most concern for project developers. As much as 81 per cent of the respondents felt that land acquisition was the most important impediment to infrastructure project implementation.
