    India’s ambitious development agenda involves facilitating investment for economic growth, infrastructure development, and social progress. Yet, thousands of investment projects have been stalled to date, raising red flags for the health of the country’s financial regulatory systems, public sector banks, and investment community. While official reasons given for stalled projects remain opaque, deep contestation leading to conflict on public (and private) lands must be better understood as a substantive risk to investments.

    Since 2009, Oxfam and others have been raising the alarm about a great global land rush. Millions of hectares of land have been acquired by investors to meet rising demand for food and biofuels, or for speculation. This often happens at the expense of those who need the land most and are best placed to protect it: farmers, pastoralists, forest-dependent people, fisherfolk, and indigenous peoples.

    This paper investigates the urbanization
    of the Indian manufacturing sector by combining enterprise
    data from formal and informal sectors. It finds that plants
    in the formal sector are moving away from urban and into
    rural locations, while the informal sector is moving from
    rural to urban locations. Although the secular trend for
    India's manufacturing urbanization has slowed down, the
    localized importance of education and infrastructure has

    In India, land continues to be of
    enormous economic, social, and symbolic relevance. The main
    purpose of this report is to review new empirical evidence
    on land administration and land policy, as well as the
    possible interaction between the two, to derive policy
    conclusions. The empirical basis for the discussion of land
    administration is provided by a review of land records,
    survey and settlement, and land registration in 14 states.

    This note summarizes the key findings of
    the attached consultant report. India is still primarily a
    rural, agrarian economy in which land use and land rights
    are an emotional issue. Prior to 1990 the presumption was
    that only residual land (non agricultural) would be made
    available for industrial use and because the state was the
    principal industrial investor the state would acquire any
    land needed. After 1990 the expectation was that private

    In India, land continues to be of
    enormous economic, social, and symbolic relevance. The way
    in which land can be accessed and its ownership documented
    is at the core of the livelihood of the large majority of
    the poor, especially in rural and tribal areas and
    determines the extent to which increasingly scarce natural
    resources are managed. Land policies and administration are
    critical determinants of the transaction cost associated
