ISLAMABAD  (APP) - The Senate Standing Committee on Law, Justice and Human Rights and Parliamentary Affairs met with Dr. Khalid Ranjha in the chair here on Friday and discussed Private Members Bill and various Constitution Amendment Bills moved by Senators Kamran Murtaza and Rehmatullah Kakar.   It also considered a Private member's Bill titled, "The Specific Relief (Amendment) Bill - 2008" introduced by Senator Wasim Sajjad on August 25, 2008, said a press release issued here.     The Committee directed the Ministry of Law to examine the Bill introduced by Senator Wasim Sajjad and submit detailed report within four weeks so that the Committee may give a final decision on the Bill.        Giving the rationale Senator Wasim Sajjad said the bill aims at amending section 21 of the Specific Relief Act, 1877 whereby a contract relating to immovable property which is not in writing or not registered cannot be specifically enforced including such contract in which time is of the essence and the time schedule has not been adhered to. Highlighting the objects and reasons for introducing the Bill, he said, the Specific Relief Act was enacted as far back as 1877 and the property was freely available at that time.Moreover, its price was not subject to excessive fluctuation. The Courts, he said, have so far taken the view that time is not of the essence in contracts relating to immovable properly.   This has led to hardships and exploitation. It has been that contracts are made, time schedule deliberately not adhered and thereafter lengthy litigation initiated on the basis of a small amount paid as earnest money so as to earn huge profit by purchasing the property years later on the original price after its value increase in its price several times. As the land has become a source commodity and is subject to heavy price fluctuations, it is necessary to attended the law by making time, of the essence in contracts relating to immovable property, added Wasim Sajjad. The Committee referred the remaining three Bills i.e. the Constitution (Amendment-X) Bill -2007, the Constitution (Amendment -XI) Bill-2007 and the Constitution (Amendment-XII), Bill- 2007 to the Ministry of Law for consideration and inclusion in the Constitutional package being prepared by the Government . The Bills were introduced by Senators Kamran Murtaza and Rehmatullah on August 20, 2007. The meeting was attended,  among others, by Senators Miss Anisa Zaib Tahirkhaili, Ch. Muhammad Anwar Bhinder, Wasim Sajjad and Kamran Murtaza besides the Federal Minister for Law, Justice & Parliamentary Affairs, Farooq H. Naik and senior officials of the Ministry.
