The efforts towards land reform are tardy and slow in India. Following reasons can be attributed for poor progress of land reforms.
Absence of Reliable Records
The absence of reliable and updated land records is the biggest hurdle for the slow progress of land reforms. The reporting system is weak and irregular and there has been no systematic programme review. Therefore, it is not possible to identify obstacles in the way of implementation of land reform.
Inadequate Financial Support
Lack of financial support is yet another obstacle in the way of land reforms. There is a lack of adequate budget allocation for the purpose of land reforms. This is largely responsible for the poor results of land reform measures.
Absence of Integrated Approach
Land reform programmes has been viewed in isolation from the mainstream of economic development of the country. The lack of integrated approach towards the abolition of intermediary tenures, tenancy reforms and ceiling of holdings etc. lack proper coordination. This contributes for the failure of land reforms efforts. Improper
The responsibilities for the implementation of land reforms are vested with the revenue administration in the states. Since high priority is allotted for the maintenance of public order, collection of land revenue and other regulatory functions, land reforms get least attention.
Legal problems also pose a hurdle in the way of implementation of land reforms in the country. Loopholes in the laws and prolonged litigation derail the process of land reforms. The laws related to land reforms are defective in many ways.JPSC Notes brings Prelims and Mains programs for JPSC Prelims and JPSC Mains Exam preparation.
