These "encroachments" increase raw generated income, but you can be assured the nation's majority population or the nation itself won't get it- it will go to the "Inc" elements of the nation, who have the $$ to control the political class.

As long as India Inc dictates India, this will continue to happen, and I won't be surprised if the 9-10-11 deal comes out when I become 80. Which is leasing out Mumbai to the US for management.

This is as bad as stealing the Kohinur diamond, from a national PoV.
