AIZAWL, April 21 - The Mizoram Assembly today passed the Mizoram Land (Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement) Bill, 2016, which aims to ensure fair compensation to
Land Revenue and Settlement Minister R Romawia, while moving the bill said it was prepared to ensure that the affected families of the land acquired by the government for development projects were provided fair compensation.
Though the Parliament had already enacted the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013, the State Assembly did not adopt it.
The State Assembly passed the bill on the same issue as the State was granted protection under the provisions of the Article 371(G) of the Constitution of India in the matter of ownership and transfer of land. � PTI
