Central Government open to Different options on land Bill.

New Delhi: The Central government indicated that it’s pretty open to all the possible options on the issue of the land bill. In its deliberation the spokesmen from the government bodies also hinted that they can only move forward after the joint committee of the Parliament submits its report after looking in to the matter. The sources from the government added that they won’t object if the report comes with a due consensus of the parties involved.

The Joint committee of the Parliament would resume only after the Bihar Assembly Elections. When asked about it Union Rural development Minister Chaudhury Birender Singh said that he will only be able to confirm after joint committee looks in to the contentious legislation.

On issues of whether the land Bill would be forced to lapse, the minister said he can only say after the joint committee submits its report. On this he reiterated that the report being good and unanimous they can proceed further. Thus all he hinted is to wait for the report to be submitted. On this he also said that the parliamentary panel which is headed by the BJP MP, S S Ahluwalia is expected to submit the report by the beginning of the next session. In the month of August the ordinances bringing the key changes in the UPA legislation like removing the provisions for consent clause and others like the Social Impact Assessment was allowed to lapse. The Union Minister said that the centre has agreed to the request of the Chief Ministers to enact land requisition laws in the meeting conducted with them.

Read On: Land Acquisition  

Mr. Sing while talking to reporters after releasing the training manuals for MGNREGA and the study of Impact Assessment of PMGSY Roads which was carried out in conjunction with the International labour Organization (ILO). 

The BJP led central government faced stiff resistance from the opposition parties, the NDA constituents, farmer’s organizations and the affiliates of RSS. This led the government not to promulgate the controversial ordinance as it sought to introduce changes in the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in the act of land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and resettlement (LARR) Act, 2013 which was brought in by the previous UPA government.

The enactment of the NDA government had issued a government directive so that the benefits of the relief, compensation and rehabilitation provided to the farmers under the UPA land enactment are extended to the thirteen other acts under which the land is acquired.

In accordance with all this happening in the country the prime minister Mr. Narendra Modi said in the radio programme “ Mann Ki Baat” that his government already decided this ordinance to expire. This means the situation would restore to what it was earlier before the NDA government took over.
