Land is certainly a crucial component in the family of all natural resources. Land-use trends therefore can impact the economy and ecology simultaneously and sometimes at cross-purposes. Therefore, a long term policy for land use based on trends and carrying capacity is earnestly needed. But given the present trend of liberalization, it is difficult to theoretically justify the process of directing land-use policy from above with State intervention. This can however, be achieved with the help of a proper incentive structure and the chalking out of a broad path for policy purposes. This paper attempts the policy initiative in the land sector based on land-use trends and carrying capacity.
