Land consolidation can help in addressing potential conflicts over changes to the use of land. Projects can use land consolidation to provide alternative land as compensation to owners of agricultural land designated for other purposes. Farms in India are not only small in size but also lie scattered. Scattered farms=lot of time, energy and money wasted in moving men and material from one farm to another= sub-optimal use of resources. Hence land consolidation = essential for progressive farming/ capitalist methods / mechanization of agriculture.
