In Pakistan land is highly concentrated, and governments are reluctant to pursue land reforms, fearing backlash from fundamentalists and feudal dominated parliament. Market instrument could be a good option. The government must ban absentee landlordism and should confiscate excessive and uncultivable land from land lords and should auction it among landless agri-workers individually or collectively. The banks should provide financial assistance in purchasing and investing on this land.
