A Parliamentary committee looking into the controversial Nuclear Liability Bill today tabled its report in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha amid protests from the Left parties in the Upper House.

The report on the Bill, crucial for operationalisation of India's civil nuclear deals with various countries, was tabled amid din in the Rajya Sabha by Committee Chairman T Subbirami Reddy and in the Lok Sabha by a member Pradeep Tamta.

The Rajya Sabha witnessed protests from the Left parties, whose members were on their feet when Reddy rose to present the report.

Following uproar, Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day and the Lok Sabha till 1400 hours.

The report was finalised after the government agreed to accommodate most of the concerns of opposition BJP including raising the compensation cap to Rs 1500 crores from Rs 500 crore.
