kolkata Updated: Jun 20, 2011 21:09 IST

The bill scrapping the previous Left Front government's deal with Tata Motors to return land to 'unwilling' farmers in Singur passed by the West Bengal Assembly on June 14, on Monday received Governor M K Narayanan's assent.

"The Governor has assented to the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Bill - 2011," state industry minister Partha Chatterjee told newsmen in Kolkata, quoting a communication to the administration from the Raj Bhavan.

"Now notification will be made on this followed by the framing of rules by a committee," Chatterjee said.

The bill was passed in the Assembly, amid a walkout by the opposition Left parties, by voice vote along with some amendments brought by the government.
