    Maybe India should consider this arrangement:

    Urbanization may not have to go hand in hand with modernization. The constraints are lighter today.

    I think that too much reliance on eminent domain rather than voluntary transactions and strong property right protections for the poor is the root of the problem. Resorting to eminent domain, especially in a country with as much corruption as India, will inevitably lead to the connected using the power of the state to dispossess the unconnected and then unrest. The issue of holdouts when assembling small parcels of land for factories or infrastructure is an issue, but it should not be used as a smokescreen to usurp farmer’s land without consent.
