-

The monsoon session of the Parliament to begin on July 18 and continues till Aug 10, informed Union Minister for Chemicals & Fertilizers and Parliamentary Affairs, Shri Ananthkumar. The Minister was briefing the media after the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, chaired by Union Minister for Home Affairs, Shri Rajnath Singh.

The session will have 18 working days and the legislative business would include passing of six Ordinances promulgated during the inter-session period before the Monsoon Session, 2018.

The Minister said that the Government would bring other important bills, including the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Third Amendment) Bill, 2017, Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2016, National Medical Commission Bill, 2017, Rights of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Second Amendment) Bill, 2017, inter alia, for consideration and passing in both the Houses of Parliament.

Sessions of the parliament:

The duration during which the members of the parliament meet to carry out the business is called a session. The constitution imposes duty upon the President of India to summon each house of the parliament. Between sessions there should not be a gap of more than 6 months. In a year the parliament conducts three sessions:

  • Budget session: February to May
  • Monsoon session: July to September
  • Winter session: November to December

What is an Ordinance:

Ordinance means an authoritative order/ law. According to Article 123, when parliament is not in session, President with the advice of the council of ministers can pass Ordinances, as parliament cannot enact the law immediately. The ordinance must be laid before the parliament when it reassembles, and shall automatically expires 6 weeks from the date of re-assembly of the parliament, unless it is disapproved by the parliament.
