Reforming management of public lands is crucial for developing smart cities and dealing with the next set of governance challenges for a rapidly urbanising India. Solutions for improving land management lie at the heart of the next phase of the India story. How government can use lands it controls more creatively to create new value and solve development challenges is a key challenge for policymakers. This is essential not just for managing the challenges of urbanization and industrialization but also has huge political and social implications with large numbers of rural workers moving out of farming into big cities as migrants.

This seminar examines how government currently deals with surplus government lands in Indian cities, how this compares with other democracies (such as US, UK, Canada, Australia etc) and suggests optimal solutions for India. It also examines the vexed question of land acquisition and how our processes can be optimized for the greatest economic and social benefit for the country.
