New Delhi: The much-talked about Land Acquisition Bill has been referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Rural Development which has been asked to give its report within three months.

"...the Speaker, Lok Sabha has referred the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Bill, 2011, as introduced in Lok Sabha, to the Standing Committee on Rural Development for examination and report within three months," the Lok Sabha Secretariat said.

The bill that seeks to replace a more than century old Act was introduced by Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh during the Monsoon Session of Parliament which concluded last week.

Ramesh had met Chairperson of the Standing Committee on Rural Development, Sumitra Mahajan, for consultation over the bill.
