Farmers in New Delhi feel cheated. Over a decade ago, they were compensated just $1 per square metre for land the state government now says is worth $200 per square metre.
The farmers are now staging protests and demanding justice, saying they were swindled by local authorities and unscrupulous buyers.
The government is tabling a new land bill to be debated in parliament soon, but critics say it will not go far enough.
