It is possible to convert residential plots to agricultural land, but the process is subject to certain conditions and regulations.

The conversion process is governed by the Tamil Nadu Conversion of Land Use (Amendment) Rules, 2020, which outline the procedures and requirements for land conversion.

Before initiating the conversion process, it is important to consider a few factors.

Firstly, the land must be located within an area designated for agricultural use, as per the Master Plan of the respective town or city.

Secondly, the land must be suitable for agriculture, based on soil quality, topography, and water availability.

Finally, it is important to ensure that the conversion will not violate any environmental regulations or cause harm to any nearby ecosystems.

Once the above factors have been considered, the landowner must obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the concerned local authority. The local authority is usually the District Collector or the Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO). The NOC is issued only after a thorough examination of the land records and a site inspection to verify that the land is suitable for agriculture.

After obtaining the NOC, the landowner must submit an application for conversion to the Tamil Nadu State Land Use Board, along with a fee and the necessary documents such as proof of ownership, survey sketches, and land records. The Board will consider the application and may approve or reject it based on factors such as the suitability of the land for agriculture, environmental concerns, and local zoning regulations.

It is important to note that the conversion of land from residential to agricultural use is a complex and time-consuming process that requires the involvement of multiple government agencies. Additionally, the process may be subject to frequent changes in regulations and policies. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with a legal expert or a land consultant to ensure compliance with all applicable rules and regulations.
