The second round of Parliament’s budget session will start today and last through April 6.
The demand for grants and approval of the Union Budget will be the main topics of the second portion of the Budget Session. According to the records, the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha each have close to 9 bills that need to be passed.
The government last winter session forwarded two bills—The Multi-State Co-operative Societies (Amendment) Bill, 2022 and The Jan Vishwas (Amendment of Provisions) Bill, 2022—to a Joint Committee, which is currently reviewing them.
Sources have confirmed that the Multi-State Cooperation Bill group led by CP Joshi will provide its findings to Parliament during the next session. This group has finished debating the Bill, and today it will probably accept its draught report.
The Biological Diversity (Amendment) Bill, 2021, which was examined by a Joint Committee of Parliament, will also be mentioned by the government.
The administration may introduce the eagerly anticipated Personal Data Protection Bill in the upcoming session, according to sources, it is also known. The Union Cabinet will probably approve this Measure soon.
The Inter-State River Water Disputes (Amendment) Bill, 2019, the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Third Amendment) Bill, 2022, and the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Fifth Amendment) Bill, 2022 are among the bills that are still pending in the Rajya Sabha.
On March 13, before the start of the second half of the budget session of the parliament, Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar met with the MPs of nine parties and discussed ways to reduce disruptions in the operation of the House, according to sources.
AAP MP Sanjay Singh, Samajwadi Party MP Ram Gopal Yadav, BRS MP K Keshava Rao, TDP MP K Ravindra Kumar, JD(U) Ram Nath Thakur, and Shiv Sena (Uddhav faction) MP Sanjay Raut were among the leaders who attended the meeting at Upa-Rashtrapati Nivas in the capital.
