The land acquisition bill was Thursday tabled in the Lok Sabha amidst chaos with the opposition parties demanding a statement from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the depreciation of the rupee against the dollar.

As the house resumed following an hour-long adjournment, Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh introduced the land acquisition and rehabilitation bill to be taken up for consideration.

The members of various political parties continued demanding that the prime minister apprise the house about the measures taken by the government to check rupee's free fall.
The house was then adjourned till 12:30 p.m.

A key legislation, the bill calls for taking the consent of 80 percent of land owners for acquiring land for private projects and of 70 percent landowners for public-private projects.
