New Delhi: Parliament may not pass a landmark land acquisition bill in the session that begins from August 1, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said yesterday, citing the legislative procedures involved in the process.

The bill seeks to overhaul a colonial era law and offer farmers market or better rates for land taken over for industrial projects and is expected to blunt protests that have hobbled several multi-billion dollar investments into India.
