In a move to prevent stagnation of development, the State instituted the right to procure land by way of revocation of property rights. Land acquisition for public interest first came to fore with Law No. 5/1960 on Basic Agrarian Laws. Then the Law No.20/1961 formed the land revocation institution but it proved ineffective over time.
