From the Archives: Controversy over Kerala land bill resolved

The controversy between the Centre and Kerala over the Kerala Land Reforms (Amendment) Bill and the Kerala Stay of Eviction Proceedings (Amendment) Bill has been resolved. This was announced to-day [Jan. 24] by Mrs. K.R. Gowri, Kerala Revenue Minister, after her meeting with the Union Home Minister, Mr. Y.B. Chavan, in New Delhi. The Centre’s concurrence to the Stay of Eviction Proceedings Bill is already on its way to the State Government. In the case of the Land Reforms Bill, the concurrence would be sent to the Kerala Government in two or three days. In the case of the Land Reforms Bill, Mrs. Gowri said the Centre had given up its demand for reservation of 20 per cent of the plantation area for further expansion.
