Agriculture land is state subject. there are some some state that prohibits mortgage over agriculture land.Banks never discourage Agriculture lands as security. Though the same is excluded from the purview of SARFAESI Act for possession by the lender in case of default, there is statutory obligation on the part of nationalized banks to accept them as Prime as Collateral security to comply by the Priority Sector norms fixed. No state can exclude Agricultural lands as security.
