The opposition, including the Indian National Congress , has opposed the bill in and out of Parliament. Sonia Gandhi , the chairperson of the United Progressive Alliance and Indian National Congress , called the bill "anti-poor" and "anti-farmer". She alleged that the bill will "break the backbone of India".
Samajwadi party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav said the Modi government is "taking anti-farmer stand" and is "favoring industrialists". One of the alternative proposals to land acquisition is leasing the land from landowners for a certain lease period. Proponents cite how land acquisition policies by Governments unwittingly encourage rampant land speculation making the projects expensive since huge portion of investment would be need to be allocated for land acquisition costs.
Leasing land, may also support sustainable project development since the lands need to be returned to the landowners at the end of the lease period in a condition similar to its original form with out considerable environmental degradation.
In this model, the landowner lends her land to the government for a steadily-increasing rent, or through an annuity-based system as currently practiced in Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. Some industries already follow the model of leasing lands instead of acquiring it. Renewable energy projects such as Wind Power farms projects often lease the land from land owners instead of trying to acquire the land which could make the projects prohibitively expensive.

The period for presenting objections was increased to 60 days and a time frame was put in place to complete the process of disbursement of compensation and provision of rehabilitation and resettlement. There was an increase in the compensation for land, taking into account an increase in the value of the land once put to its proposed use, and a restriction in state intervention for acquisition of land for companies to thirty per cent of the land where seventy per cent of the land would have to be acquired by the company itself through download in the market.
In order to settle disputes regarding land acquisition it proposed a Land Acquisition Compensation Disputes Settlement Authority to adjudicate all such disputes within six months. The Relief and Rehabilitation Bill mandated the procedures for determining eligibility and benefits for affected individuals and put in place authorities and bodies to oversee the process. However, it did not make compulsory the resettlement of affected people, but instead merely mandated the procedure.
Its mechanism of grievance redressal was problematic in granting authority likened to that of a court to authorities outside of the judiciary.
The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act In , on recommendations of NAC to combine the two Bills, a comprehensive Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Bill was introduced in the Parliament to replace the existing Land Acquisition Act and bring the process of land acquisition and subsequent rehabilitation of the affected population into the ambit of one single law. Certain key new elements introduced in this Bill included the increase in compensation values to four times the market price of land in rural areas, and two times the market value in urban areas.
While it limited the acquisition of land for public purposes only, it included private companies as well as public-private partnership projects within the ambit of the law, requiring the consent of 80 per cent of displaced people in this case.
Social Impact Assessment was to be conducted in the case of all land acquisition. However, it was a move ahead in establishing certain structures in place such that the interests of to-be affected populations are taken into consideration to a large extent.
