Liberalization, Hindu Nationalism and the State

Nikita Sud

Oxford University Press

The transition from ideas and policies that sought to redistribute ‘land to the tiller’ to those that promote ‘land liberalization’ is a snapshot of Gujarat’s story of development from independence to the present day. The chapter shows, in high-definition, Gujarat’s thwarted post-independence developmentalism giving way to a politicized and skewed liberalization. An embedded state has provided continuity between the phases. The great Indian land grab and the re-agglomeration of land in the hands of the mega players of the new economy, which dominates public debate in India today, can be contextualized within the larger policy shift depicted in this chapter.

Keywords:   Land policies, land reform, land grab, land liberalization, agricultural land, non-agricultural purposes
