A day after the Governor of West Bengal Mr. M.K. Narayanan gave his assent, the State government had yesterday issued a notification to turn the Singur Land Development and Rehabilitation Bill into a law. Industry Minister Mr. Partha Chatterjee said that the notification would be followed by the framing of rules by a committee, which would decide the process to return an equivalent portion of land to the “unwilling” farmers in Singur. Those land’s were acquired by the earlier government for the now abandoned Tata Motors’ small car project.

The Singur Land Bill marks the end of the first rapid fire round of the events, set in motion by the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s announcement on day one of her coming to the power, that Mamata Banerjee’s Cabinet had decided to give back the land at Singur.

After the efforts to kickstart the process through an ordinance had failed, a Bill was moved on 13th June and passed a day later, with 8 amendments, in an Assembly bereft of any Opposition party.This happened after the Opposition led by the CPI(M) walkedout.
