Certain pockets of ecologically or agriculturally sensitive lands can not be converted at all. For example, conversion could be banned in villages around large lake, conversion could be barred in low lying paddy fields to stop filling of land with earth for other purposes. There are a number of other conditions by different states regarding conversion (for example some states require 40 feet access road to the land to be converted. This could be impractical in most cases)

10. Why do non farmers buy farm lands?
Many people buy land from farmers and lease it back for cultivation. Farm lands are available very cheap compared to "residential or industrial use" land. Traditionally in India, people have a great asipration to own land and once someone has adequate free cash to spend, he looks for acquiring land somewhere. Over a period, land price increases and the investor could sell and buy land in a different, more prominent place.
Large tracts of lands are bought for commercial farming, involving modern technologies and with participation of local communities.
11. Investment Opportunity
As the country is growing, industries are spreading everywhere and agricultural lands bought near upcoming projects give huge returns. A case in example is Sanand in Gujrat, where prices have gone up by 50 to 100 times after the Tata Group decided to move in from West Bengal with their Nano car Project. Announcements of Airports and large Highways make land prices around to flare up.
Certain agricultural commodities and the cost of land on which they are grown also go up based on movement of price of commodity. Recently prices of Gaur Seeds shot up by 100 times causing land price also to appreciate fast.
