fROM WHERE TO START


We could implement this plan as a trail and low profile on non-cultivated areas in Pakistan for two to three years. We could start implementing this plan on smaller areas less than 20000-30000 acers (800-1200 murabba land), otherwise ROI will be much lower in the beginning do to resource expenses.

​​Constitutional Amendment

     About 50 million acres of agricultural land will be created which are presently abundant (foothills of mountains, river banks, deserts and gov’t owned lands). Ownership of these about 50 million acres will be transfered to district governments and then leased to working farmers as prescribed in the mechanism set by the Constitution.


Benefits:
1. About 70 percent elimination of litigation
2. Elimination of Feudalism (absentee landlordism)
3. Revenue collection of about 20 Billion USD
4. Tremendous increase in agricultural production
5. Increase in agricultural related industry


Land Distribution Mechanism

1. Mark the land into agricultural zones within each district
    (district #, block #[1,000 acres] , lot #[10 acres]), all of which 
    should be computerized.

2. Prepare a list of all working farmers on a village level, tehsil level
    & district level (ages between 20 to 60 years).

3. Ten acre lots alotted to every family, preferably from the same
    village, tehsil and district (NO sale, purchase, inheritance or gift).

4. Incase of a shortage of working farmers in a district, farmers from a
    neighboring district may cultivate that district’s land.

5. Incase of death, disability or retirement at the age of 65, the lot will
    be realotted preferably to the same family and/or village.


6. Farmers will pay annual dues to district/provincial/federal government.
    50% to District Govt, 25% to Provincial Govt, 
    25% to Federal Govt
    The amount of dues will be based on the classification of the agricultural land.
       For example: Type A Land: 35,000 R.s./acre
                             Type B Land: 20,000 R.s./acre
                             Type C Land: 5,000 R.s./acre

​In this way, the government will collect about 20 Billion U.S. Dollars every year from about100 Million acres of agricultural land.


7. Agricultural scientists and experts will prepare a crop policy for each district regarding type of crops, seeds,             fertilizer and pesticides. 

8. The provincial government will be responsible for providing irrigation and agricultural tool and machinery.

9. An agricultural inspector will be responsible to achieve the crop targets of the block (1,000 acres).

Implementation of Land Reforms Challenges


Land reform is a deeply political process and
therefore many arguments for and against could
have emerged.


It involves the changing of laws, regulations or
customs regarding land ownership. One some
extant, it refers to transfer of ownership from the
more powerful to the less powerful.

1. Weak legal and institutional frameworks.
2. Revenue Collection system will be much easier (“Patwari” system will be eliminated).
3. Over-centralized and inaccessible land registries.
4. Corruption and arbitrary land acquisition and eviction i.e. during Flood.

5. Eliminate and solve civil judicial problems in courts due to disputed land ownership.
6. It will increase Patriotism, Love and Unity among Nation.

7. Solve Water/Dames Problems and will fix Irrational behaviors, unemployment’s, Inequality, and equity problems​​

Total Pakistan Area 796095 (km²) = 196719358.29 (Acres)

Reason for this Revolutionary Change in Pakistan

GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT


Government being the owner i.e. acts as a lessor should be encouraged to provide guaranteed security for land leased and the required resources. Also will provide the legal, research and institutional capacity needed for just, reasonable and efficient land administration and where necessary, intervening in the land market to make reforms related to land distribution.
