FICCI's Taskforce on Land Reforms & Policy has been formed with an objective of sharing with the Government industry's views on land related issues. The work involves assessing industry's need for land on medium to long term basis, understanding industry issues involved in land purchase, suggesting measures for simplifying land acquisition, allotment and purchase procedures for the industry, and providing feedback to the Government, including State Governments, on Policies, Acts and Rules related to purchase, acquisition or allotment of land.
Recent work undertaken
The Taskforce has held various consultations with industry on the new Land Acquisition Law enacted by the government, and submitted its observations and suggestions to the Government.
FICCI has also submitted its observations to the Rajasthan government on the draft 'Rajasthan Land Acquisition Bill, 2014'.
FICCI submitted its comments on the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Second Amendment) Bill, 2015 and made a presentation before the Joint Committee of the Parliament in this context.
