Land Bill may be tabled in winter session of Parliament

NEW DELHI, Nov 20, 2012, DHNS
The Union Ministry of Rural Development has finalised the much hyped Land Acquisition Bill and is expected to be tabled before the Cabinet soon.

The bill will ensure that consent of 80 per cent of the landowners will be required for acquisition of land for private projects and projects under pubic private partnership.

However, on many contentious issues, the bill allowed the states to take a decision. For instances, if a state acquires land and decides to lease it out to the private sector, then how many landowners consent is required will be decided by the state government. Even the compensation to be paid to the landowners also will be decided by the state itself.

The government expected to bring the Land Acquisition bill in the coming winter session of Parliament.

Meanwhile, the government has listed 35 bills — 25 for consideration and passing and 10 for introduction during the session.

Among the bills to be taken up for consideration and passage are Forward Contracts (Regulation) Amendment Bill, Banking Laws (Amendment) Bill, Insurance Laws (Amendment) Bill, Lokpal and Lokayuktas Bill, and Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Bill.
