The Lok Sabha has passed the NDA government's Land Bill. However, the real test would be in Rajya Sabha where it is in a minority. The government moved nine amendments as it sought to placate the opposition. The Lok Sabha, where the Modi government has a big majority, passed the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Bill 2015 by voice vote. The Congress and other Opposition parties walked out before the bill was voted on.
