Land acquisition bill in Lok Sabha today

Land acquisition bill in Lok Sabha today

The government will introduce the controversial land acquisition bill in the Lok Sabha on Friday despite not having the numbers in the Rajya Sabha.

The bill, which was passed by the Lok Sabha in March, could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha following which the related Ordinance had to be re-promulgated after proroguing the Upper House.

A copy of the re-promulgated ordinance was placed in the Lok Sabha on April 20 and in the Rajya Sabha on April 23, the opening days of both Houses in the second phase of the budget session.

As part of the plan, the government has extended the session of Lok Sabha by three days on Thursday after a meeting of Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs.
Sources in the government said they will make an attempt to get the bill passed in both Houses.

The decision to bring the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Bill, 2015 to the Lok Sabha was taken in a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) on Wednesday, the sources said.
