AP Assigned Lands (Prohibition and Transfer) (Amendment) Bill, 2020

Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly passed the AP Assigned Lands (Prohibition and Transfers) (Amendment) Bill, 2020 by voice vote recently. Under this amendment bill, those farmers who have given land on lease voluntarily will be paid Rs.25,000 each year as rent per acre. This bill was criticised for forcibly taking away lands from the poor and dalits who have been cultivating the lands for  the past several years.
