Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Monday said that the January 25 high court verdict on the Chotanagpur Tenancy Act was not against it and the government had no proposal to amend it.

"The judgement only elaborated the act as to what it says, and is not against the act," Munda told the state assembly.

Stating that there was no proposal for amendment to the act, Munda, however, said that the government was readyfor a debate in the house on the matter.

He was replying to Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric) MLA Pradip Yadav who asked whether the government intended to amend the act following the verdict.

The Chotanagpur Tenancy Act Act, 1908, underlines certain restrictions on sale and purchase of land belonging to tribals, schedule castes and backward class in the areas covered under it.
