    If yes, then what is the process to be followed to make the whole transaction legal?

    hi jyoti
    Agricultural Land purchase is quite involved legally. It varies from state to state. Normally if you prove yourself as farmer- it is easy- if not most states require that your father (or maybe grandfather!) was a farmer. It becomes even more difficult if you are not from the state you plan to buy- then, in many states the only way is to get married to a local girl (who is from agriculture background).
    But we Indians are very brilliant in getting around all these rules- I have found Tamilians holding land in Gujarat and Gujaratis holding tribal land in arunachal PRadesh.
    One work around is to lease the land for say 99 years and not buy it- I guess there are may more ways.
    What you need is to consult a good lawyer who will help you to get the land in the LEGAL way. If you do it with half knowledge you may see your money evaporating and the land will be a dream.
    I am not an expert on land laws but I have friends who did discuss some of these issues. So dont get discouraged- but proceed with caution and do thorough homework.

    I say your post on joint buying- better you consult lawyer before taking any final decision. He should be competent lawyer - not a land broker.

    Depends on where you want to buy land? If the proposal is in Maharashtra, then it is possible to get a farmer certificate by buying land in Rajasthan and then using that to buy the agri land here.

    I also believe that TN also provides for purchase of agri land without farmar certificate.

    Let me know I recently acquired agric land in Maharashtra
