The development of infrastructure in any country makes the land acquisition a necessary evil. It is imperative for any government to acquire land for developmental activity and this is done through the power vested in the government which finds legitimization through constitutional provisions or statutes. Different nations follow different practices however no practice can be called best practice. India’s land acquisition laws are plagued by defects which result in dissatisfaction amongst the land owners who are deprived of the land. This paper seeks to study the land acquisition practices of India and the UK comparatively and come up with suggestions to make the Indian land acquisition practices more considerate towards the interests of the landowners.
