If any difficulty arises in giving effect to the provisions of this Act, and in particular, if any doubt arises as to whether any compensation is payable under this Act or to the amount thereof the Central Government may, by order make such provision or give such direction, not inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, as appear to it to be necessary or expedient for the removal of the doubt or difficulty; and the decision of the Central Government, in such cases, shall be final.

Every Scheme and every rule made under this Act, shall be laid, as soon as may be after it is made, before each House of Parliament while, it is in session for a total period of thirty days which may be comprised in one session or in two or more successive sessions, and if before the expiry of the session in which it is so laid or the successive sessions aforesaid, both Houses agree in making any modification in the Scheme or the rule or both Houses agree that the Scheme or the rule should not be made, the Scheme or the rule shall thereafter have effect only in such modified form or be of no effect as the case may be, so, however, that any such modification or annulment shall be without prejudice to the validity of anything previously done under that Scheme or the rule.
