NEW DELHI: The Joint Parliamentary Committee studying the contentious Land Bill may seek a week’s extension to complete its report, even as the next session is set to begin from July 21.

S S Ahluwalia,who heads the committee, is likely to request Speaker Sumitra Mahajan for the extension since the Committee was mandated to finish its report by July 21.

The panel members were also in agreement regarding seeking an extension as several persons and organisations were yet to depose before the panel.

Even several of the state Chief Secretaries are yet to revert on various issues raised by the panel.

There were already indications that the NDA government could bring in further changes to the Ordinance to include the concerns raised by the farmers bodies.

As the Panel resumed its weekly meetings, a number of Agriculture Universities suggested that the government first acquire wasteland for development purposes and only use cultivable land as a last resort.
