A productive session for Lok Sabha

The curtains came down on the monsoon session of Parliament on Friday, with government managers claiming this to be one of the most productive ones for the Lok Sabha since 2000.
Provisional data released by the Parliamentary Affairs Ministry show the session had 17 sittings and the Lok Sabha conducted business for over 112 hours and passed 20 of the 21 Bills tabled by the government. Time lost due to interruptions was eight hours and 26 minutes, while the Lok Sabha sat an extra 20 hours and 43 minutes in the conduct of business. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar expressed his satisfaction over the way both Houses functioned.
“Despite being adjourned for a day to mourn the passing of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, the House functioned 20 hours more than the allotted time,” he said. “One day was devoted to the discussion on the no-confidence motion and the government achieved a long-pending dream of passing the Bill for giving justice to the SC/ST brethren against atrocities and the OBC Bill,” he said.
