The monsoon session was stormy with around 75 % of productivity. While the government intended to pass more than 25 bills on various issues, the actual number was quite less. While the Lok Sabha passed 14 Bills, Rajya Sabha passed 9 Bills. The government also wanted to replace Ordinances promulgated by the President during inter- session period with four Bills. The final count of Bills that were passed by both Houses of Parliament was a meager 13.

Winter session of the Parliament will start on December15 and lasts till January 5. The earlier proposed Nov 21 was delayed by the Gujarat Elections.  The Opposition parties are likely to take a strong position during the session as senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha came down heavily against Modi’s policies and the state of economy. Apart from this, the Opposition is armed with many other issues from deporting Rohingyas to deferring the dates of Gujarat elections. It is likely that session would be stormy.

The monsoon session was stormy with around 75 % of productivity. While the government intended to pass more than 25 bills on various issues, the actual number was quite less. While the Lok Sabha passed 14 Bills, Rajya Sabha passed 9 Bills. The government also wanted to replace Ordinances promulgated by the President during inter- session period with four Bills. The final count of Bills that were passed by both Houses of Parliament was a meager 13.

The government had to face embarrassment, as it was unable to secure the passage of a vital clause in the Constitution (123rd Amendment) Bill, that aims to give the National Commission on Backward Classes a Constitutional status. As the ruling party members in the Upper House were not in sufficient numbers a clause of the Bill that dealt with the composition of the Commission had to be dropped. This led to BJP chief Amit Shah warning party members of dire consequences if they absent from the session.

Of the 13 bills passed, two Bills were related to extending the GST to Jammu & Kashmir. Four Bills replacing the Ordinances, namely, the Banking Regulation (Amendment) Ordinance, 2017, the Punjab Municipal Corporation Law (Extension to Chandigarh) Amendment Ordinance, 2017, the Central Goods and Services Tax (Extension to Jammu and Kashmir) Ordinance, 2017 and the Integrated Goods and Services Tax (Extension to Jammu and Kashmir) Ordinance, 2017 which were promulgated by the President, were considered and passed by Lok Sabha. However, the Rajya Sabha could not take up all the ordinances except Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill, 2017, on which an animated debate took place in the House.

Meanwhile, the details of the Bills that the government intends to pass in this session are yet to come out. But one thing is sure that, this session too might not be a smooth sail for the government, particularly regarding economy.
