The Law sets the maximum size ceilings of agricultural land which may belong to an individual, a family or an agricultural cooperative. Only in certain specific situations (e.g. inheritance) the amount of land may be in excess of the allowable size. The surplus of land shall be expropriated and the State shall pay compensation to the former owners. The land so acquired shall be distributed to entitled individuals/families fulfilling certain requisites (afghan nationals previously cultivating the land but not owning it, individuals having no lands, farmers, jobless people) who, on their part, shall take possession within four months from the attribution of land, shall be the only user of the land and, in case of a family, shall divide the harvest equally and shall not subdivide the land in plots. A Council shall be instituted to supervise the reform.
