New Delhi, March 19:  The contentious land acquisition bill is likely to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha in the second half of the ongoing parliament session, government sources said on Thursday.

According to the sources, the bill, which has been passed in the Lok Sabha, will be brought in the upper house in the second half of the session, as the government had little hope of the Opposition giving it an easy way in the Rajya Sabha.
