An essential pit stops in parliamentary business

  • Published
    16th Sep, 2022


The recently concluded monsoon session of Parliament has only five pieces of legislation in its bucket. Frequent parliamentary disruptions eat away the time in the legislative process and on many occasions the bills get referred to the standing committees, which may be counterproductive as it only delays the whole process.

Relevant Parliamentary data:

  • Low Productivity: The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha recorded productivity of 47% and 42% respectively during this monsoon session.
  • Department Related Parliamentary Standing Committees (DRSC): Parliament has 24 DRSCs, having members from both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha in the ratio 2:1. These are constituted by the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha,
  • Trends Analysis: The percentage of Bills having been referred to the DRSCs during the tenures of the 14th (2004-2009), 15th (2009-2014), and 16th Lok Sabha’s (2014-2019) has been 60%, 71%, and 27%, respectively.
