The State Cabinet on Wednesday approved the amendment to Orissa Resettlement and  Rehabilitation Policy, 2006 to make the family definition more pronounced.

After the amendment, major grandsons irrespective of their marital status and major unmarried daughters  and granddaughters and major unmarried sisters would now get the benefits of the policy and can thus consider themselves as separate families.

The amendment was necessitated to clear confusion during selection of beneficiaries under the R&R policy implementation, Chief Secretary J K Mohapatra said. The 2006 R&R policy is applicable to all  projects in the State for acquisition of private land under the Land Acquisition Act, 1894 or any other law in force or proclamation inviting objections in case of Government land.

The policy is also applicable to projects for which land is directly purchased by the project proponent on the basis of negotiated price, he added.

The Cabinet amending Odisha Government Rules of Business mentioned that as per the new guidelines issued by the Finance department, new State plan and non-plan schemes above `250 cr are required to be approved by the Cabinet after appraisals of the schemes by the Expenditure Finance Committee.

The Cabinet further approved the proposal of the Parliamentary Affairs department for convening the 13th session of the 14th Assembly. The monsoon session of the Assembly is commencing on August 20 with seven working days.
