A new state in India, and a new opportunity to give the poor a voice to improve their land rights

February 6, 2014 — The Government of India is proposing creating a new state called Telangana. Landesa has launched a “land caravan” with our land tenure experts travelling the countryside this week to gather information from farmers, the landless poor, and local government officials to help guide the state’s new land laws and policy.

To follow our land caravan, view our photo journal updated daily from our India Team.
