Govt ready to make Changes in Land Acquisition Bill

New Delhi, March 10: The Centre is ready to make major changes in the controversial land acquisition bill to get support from the Opposition parties, which have been opposing the ordinance terming it an "anti-farmer".

Today, the government moved nine amendments including the land will be acquired without the consent of the farmers for the government projects like railway, highways, roads, hospitals, etc.

However, the Congress wants the bill prepared by its then government should be produced in the Parliament without any amendment. The BJD and TMC have already made clear that they will not support the bill if that would not fulfill the farmers' expectations.

According to the bill brought by the UPA government, 70% consent of farmers was required for the acquisition of land for the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects. But the new bill exempts this rule.
