Setting up Dairy Farm in non-agricultural land

Hello,

My friend owns 4 acre converted land in Karnataka. I am thinking of setting up a Dairy Farm in this property.

Questions:

  1. Can i setup a Dairy Farm in a converted land in Karnataka ? is it Legal ?

  2. Should i get any permission from local/state authorities ?

  3. Can i enter into a lease agreement with my friend to setup the Dairy farm ? will this be legal ?

Thank you,

  1. Can i setup a Dairy Farm in a converted land in Karnataka ? is it Legal ?

Yes you can

  1. Should i get any permission from local/state authorities ?

NO need to get any permission if it is out of the town.  If, in between the city or populated area NOC from neighbors is a precautionary measure.

  1. Can i enter into a lease agreement with my friend to setup the Dairy farm ? will this be legal ?

You have to enter in to lease agreement as you have to build cow shed, silos, labor sheds which are capital investment for you.  Yes it is legal and in case of disputes all the clauses mentioned in the agreement will give you some support in the courts of law.
