Expert Answer:

The deterioration of the quality of land is known as land degradation. Mining anddeforestation have deteriorated the quality of land in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Odisha. Overgrazing is one of the main reasons for the land degradation in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. In Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh, excess irrigation has resulted in water logging leading to increased soil salinity. In major metropolitan cities, industrial effluents have degraded the land. 
  • Afforestation
  • Proper management of grazing and wastelands
  • Control on unrestricted mining
