MP Briefing on Land Acquisition Act

RGICS organised a policy briefing on the proposed amendment to the land acquisition bill on 7th August, 2014. The briefing was attended by over ten Members of Parliament including senior Members such as Shri. Jairam Ramesh. The legislators were briefed by farmer organisations such as Deli Grameen Samaj, Bharatiya Kisan Union and Ekta Parishad on the shortcomings of the proposed amendments and how they will be detrimental to the Farmer community in India. The Members and farmer groups came to a consensus that a continuous nation-wide awareness campaign to mobilise support against the amendments was required.
