The proposed Bill, ‘Right to Compensation, Resettlement, Rehabilitation and Transparency in Land Acquisition Bill 2011’ seeks to replace the Land Acquisition Act of 1894 which has outlived its utility.

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email:
