Tribune News Service Chandigarh, October 20 Wherever people fought oppression, Prof K Gopal Iyer, just had to be there. He did not not mind boarding a train, whether or not his seat was reserved, or travelling atop a crowded bus to reach the trouble spot — his meagre belongings stuffed in a sling bag.  Known for his work on bonded labour, peasant movements and land reforms, the 75-year-old “people’s scholar” passed away in Chandigarh on Thursday. He was suffering from a heart ailment. (Follow  The Tribune on Facebook ; and  Twitter @thetribunechd ) Prof Iyer hailed from Tamil Nadu.

Tribune News Service Chandigarh, October 9 The state government is bringing in an ordinance which will allow realtors, commercial investors and industrialists to keep more than the permissible 18 acres. For this, it is amending the Punjab Land Reforms Act, 1972. The Cabinet had approved an amendment to the Act last month. The matter is being examined by the legal and legislative departments, which are in the process drafting the ordinance. Earlier this year, the Revenue Department had ordered that large tracts of agricultural land, acquired by investors for industrial projects that had failed to take off, be taken back and put to agricultural use.

The idea was to check the acquisition of land by “dubious” means to circumvent the law. Subsequently, DCs in all districts were asked to scrutinise all cases of land being acquired beyond the permissible limit. The government, ...
