Cabinet nod to re-promulgation

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 30 � The government today decided to re-promulgate the controversial land ordinance, saying it is necessary for maintaining continuity and providing a framework to compensate people whose land is acquired, reports PTI.

Once approved by President Pranab Mukherjee, the ordinance would have been promulgated for the third time and will be the 13th executive order of the Narendra Modi government since it came to power in May last year.

�The Cabinet has approved again the land acquisition Ordinance to maintain continuity. As you are aware, the Bill is before the Joint Committee (of Parliament) and the old Ordinance will lapse on June 3,� Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters after the Cabinet meeting.

The government also came out with a statement about the ordinance.

Prasad said that the re-promulgation was necessary as the amendments to the 2013 Act include 13 central Acts for ensuring compensation to farmers whose land is acquired for certain types of projects.
