This  blog analyses a Land administrative innovation - Land Pooling Policy which is being used an alternate approach to land acquistion in urban development context.  It argues that how this has become a land grabbing instrument by private players through public private partnership, bypassing urbanisation with newer legal mechanisms shaped in corporate interest to assembling land and developing physical and social infrastructure.
