Days after presenting three important laws in the Assembly, the Odisha government withdraws them.

The Odisha administration on Thursday announced the withdrawal of all three significant laws without giving a reason, days after presenting them to the state Legislature.The three bills that were withdrawn were the Odisha State Commission for Backward Classes (Amendment) Bill, 2023, the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation, and Resettlement (Odisha Amendment) Bill 2023, and the Odisha Apartment (Ownership and Management) Bill, 2023.

The three legislation were removed from the Assembly because the Naveen Patnaik government might use an ordinance to enact them. “Given that the Odisha Assembly session will expire earlier than expected, it seems unlikely that these legislation will be passed within the current session. If the Assembly is still considering the bills, the government cannot introduce ordinances. It cannot wait until the Assembly’s upcoming session, which is anticipated to take place in September. Thus it was decided to withdraw the proposals,” a representative who was aware of the situation said.

The Odisha government has chosen to simplify the land purchase process for infrastructure and industrial projects with its decision to alter the land acquisition law, a crucial piece of legislation. It has decided to eliminate the requirement for a social impact assessment (SIA) study prior to land purchase through the modification, citing the fact that the procedure “causes delay in the acquisition of land.”

The government of Odisha has also chosen to include a new clause that will eliminate the need for permission to acquire land for a variety of industrial and infrastructure projects in non-scheduled areas. Scheduled (tribal dominated) areas are required to obtain this consent.A number of BJP-run states, including Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Karnataka, have altered the federal land acquisition law and got the President’s approval.
