Delay in passage of Land Bill hurting almost 40% of government's infrastructure projects
Out of 758 projects at least 323 projects are running behind schedule.

New Delhi: Ahead of the Monsoon session of Parliament, CNN-IBN has accessed a report that shows government projects are running late due to delay in the passage of Land Acquisition Bill.

According to a report, 40% of central government's infrastructure projects are facing delays. Out of 758 projects at least 323 projects are running behind schedule.

The delays in the contentious Land Acquisition Bill have derailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi government's development agenda. The reasons for time overruns as reported by various implementing agencies are delay in Land bill and forest clearances.

Meanwhile, the Joint Parliamentary Panel had sought one week extension for submitting a report on Land Acquisition Bill. The panel was to submit the report on first day of monsoon session that is July 21.

The panel has written to the state governments and asked chief secretaries to submit their reports.

Narendra Modi has also called a meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, which comprises all chief ministers, on July 15 to discuss the controversial land bill and other issues like poverty, health and social sector schemes.
