The Prime Minister’s Office has set up a group of 12 ministers to resolve differences over the proposed Model Agricultural Land Leasing Act, 2016. A GoM has been constituted by PMO for examining the draft Model Agricultural Land Leasing Act, 2016, prepared by Niti Aayog and recommending the way forward in the light of necessity, practicality and desirability of encouraging land leasing. The move came after the Aayog took up with the PMO the issue of the crucial legislation being held up. The ministers of social justice and empowerment, tribal affairs, environment and forest, railway and commerce and industry are also part of the group.
