Agricultural Land Protection Act

Legislative
Law
Passed in 1996
The Agricultural Land Protection Act allows land use change of agricultural land only in certain specific cases. The owners and the users of agricultural land are entitled to tax and credit preferences when implementing the mandatory limitation on agricultural land use as well as when implementing projects to restore and improve the fertility of agricultural land.

The Agricultural Land Protection Act contains a legal framework covering some of the activities envisaged for the agriculture sector in the National Action Plan on Climate Change, such as phasing out burning of stubble and plant waste on agricultural lands and promoting agricultural practices aimed at further reducing GHG emissions.
