The Parliamentary Standing Committee going into the Lokpal Bill will complete its work "soon", its chairman Abhishek Manu Singhvi said on Sunday.

"The speed and the direction of the committee are nothing short of a miracle. We are hoping to complete our work soon and fast but it is unfair to suggest timelines and deadlines," Singhvi told PTI.

The committee has been given three months time till December seven to prepare its report.

The committee, however, was not in operation for almost a month as the term of the earlier committee ended and reconstitution took time.

Team Anna had first appeared before the committee in August this year after Anna Hazare's 13-day fast that month demanding that the Jan Lokpal Bill be passed in the Monsoon Session of Parliament.
