This research paper examines the proportionate loss of agricultural land and the suffering of various categories of farms due to acquisition of land by the government in the name of infrastructural development. Infrastructural development may be a progressive path for economic development provided that the acquisition of agricultural land should not hamper the agricultural potentiality. The small farms have become marginalized and found to be the worst sufferer due to the land acquisition. Consequently, it has been affecting the rural agriculture by way of decrease in agricultural production succeeded by attracting more rural-urban migration, high density of urban population, industrial pollution, slum development, etc.
