Parliament panel for tougher land bill with no role for govt 17.5.2012 Financial Chronicle
A parliamentary stan­ding committee on Thursday proposed a tougher land acquisition bill than what the cabinet proposed. The bill in its present form has been criticised by industry as impractical and cost inflationary because of the heavy compensation and rehabilisation prescribed. A 210-page report of the committee, tabled in Parliament, bars the government from acquiring land for private businesses and said there should be greater clarity in the definition of ‘public purpose’. ‘Public purpose’ should be limited to linear infrastructure and irrigation, including multipurpose dams and social sector infrastructure such as schools, hospitals and drinking water or sanitation projects constructed at state expense, according to the report. “All cases of land acquisition must entail obligations for adequate compensation, rehabilitation and resettlement of all land losers and other affected persons,” the report said. The committee headed by BJP leader Sumitra Mahajan said land acquisition for ...

FinMin wants central PSUs to go for listing 17.5.2012 Financial Chronicle
Unfazed by the current stock market volatility, the government has advised the central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) to go for listing in order to improve corporate governance and reduce their dependence on government finance for their capital requirement. The Financial Advisers, who are the board of CPSEs, are requested to emphasise the benefits of listing and get them listed in compliance with the disinvestment policy, the Finance Ministry said its communications to CPSEs. "Further, Financial Advisers are advise the CPSEs that consequent to listing such companies would be better able to tap the capital market for capital expenditure requirements instead of depending on government finances," it said. The Department of Disinvestment has already asked small PSUs, which intend to hit capital markets, to come with initial public offering (IPO) of more than 10 per cent of their paid-up capital.
