    Land Acquisition Compensation Calculator

    On the acquisition of a land, certain compensation might arise as per the Land Acquisition Act of 2013. On the basis of the terms of the act, there are a few things which are added to the market value of the land and the same is paid out as a compensation. The procedure of calculating the amount of compensation can be summed up as follows:

    • Solatium payable at the rate of 30% of the market value of the land.
    • Escalation payable at the rate of 12% p.a. of the fair market value of the land. This is calculated from the date of commencement of the notification under Section 4(1) to the date of commencement of notification under Section 9(1). However, this period will be subject to a maximum of 3 years. The total escalation payable in this case will not exceed 21% of the fair market value of the land.
    • Interest payable will be calculated as follows:
      • Interest at the rate of 9% p.a. for the first year
      • Interest at the rate of 15% p.a. from the second year.

    The interest payable in this case shall not exceed the mark of 75.25%
