NEW DELHI: Seven key bills including “Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill” and “Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill” have been placed on the agenda of the Rajya Sabha for the last week of the current budget session.
Six of the seven bills on the Rajya Sabha’s agenda have already been passed by the Lok Sabha.
“The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill 2022”, passed by the Lok Sabha last week, proposes to authorize the police to take action on convicts and defendants for the purposes of their criminal identifications and investigations to keep records.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah is expected to spearhead “The Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2022”, which proposes the unification of the three municipal corporations. The bill was passed by the Lok Sabha on Wednesday by a voice vote while various amendments proposed by opposition MPs were rejected.
The MCD Amendment Bill is expected to generate heat in the Upper House, with the Aam Admi Party (AAP) alleging that the legislative proposal was introduced in parliament to delay municipal elections in the nation’s capital.
The Chartered Accountants, Cost and Works Accountants and Company Secretaries (Amendment) Bill 2021, which provides for the disclosure of pending complaints or actionable information against members and companies, will be tabled by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in the Upper House.
The other four bills are “The Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Amendment) Bill, 2022”, relating to Tripura, “The Constitution (Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Tribes) Orders (Amendment) Bill, 2022”, relating to Uttar Pradesh, “The Indian Antarctica Bill, 2022”, and “The Weapons of Mass Destruction and Their Delivery Systems (Prohibition of Unlawful Activities Amendment) Bill, 2022”.
“The Weapons of Mass Destruction and Their Delivery Systems (Prohibition of Unlawful Activities Amendment) Bill, 2022”, which is yet to be passed by the Lok Sabha, will be presented to the Rajya Sabha.
Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda will propose “The Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Ordinance (Amendment) Bill, 2022” relating to Tripura in Rajya Sabha during the last week of the budget session at the Parliament.
Rajya Sabha during the budget session recorded a productivity of 101%. The previous week witnessed disruptions and forced adjournments due to which 54 minutes of Upper House time was lost. However, members sat overtime for one hour and 48 minutes.
The Business Advisory Committee (BAC) meeting chaired by the President of Rajya Sabha, Mr. Venkaiah Naidu, on Friday allocated 5 p.m. for the passage of seven bills. The total productive time available for Rajya Sabha is 29 hours and 30 minutes in the coming week.
The second half of the budget session began on March 14 and will end on April 8. The first half of the budget session began on January 31 and ended on February 11.
