Protests by farmers against land acquisition are re-emerging as a factor that could disrupt plans to industrialise and urbanise India rapidly.

Protests continue against land acquisition for South Korean firm POSCO's proposed $12 billion steel mill, while land given to Tata Motors for a car plant has been taken away to be returned to farmers.
