“The Committee noted that vide their 5th Report (15th Lok Sabha) they recommended that a consultant be appointed and decision regarding surplus land be taken,” the panel said in its report on Tuesday.

“However, no action has been initiated so far by the ministry (DoT) in this regard. The Committee desired that necessary action may be taken and the assurance be implemented at the earliest,” the panel noted.
