Parliament Legislates Land Compensation Bill

August 3 , 2019

In its emergency meeting, the parliament has approved a proclamation that privileges property owners relocated from their land for investment purposes to own shares in the investment project. Drafted by the Ministry of Urban Development & Construction, the bill replaces a 14-year-old proclamation after being approved early last week. After having a heated debate, the members of parliament passed the proclamation with five votes abstaining and five more against. The proclamation also calls for the formation of a rehabilitation fund that will administer help to relocated people. It will also enable the farmers to get a fair and proportional replacement of land.
