THE SHORTEST FULL-TERM LOK SABHA

  • The 17th Lok Sabha could become the shortest full-term Lok Sabha since 1952.
  • Of all the Lok Sabhas that completed the full five-year term, the 16th Lok Sabha had the lowest number of sitting days (331).
  • With one more year remaining, and 58 average sitting days a year, the 17th Lok Sabha is unlikely to sit for more than 331 days.
  • This could make the 17th Lok Sabha the shortest full-term Lok Sabha since 1952.
  • The terms of the fourth, sixth, ninth, eleventh and twelfth Lok Sabha were shorter than five years and so the number of sittings were fewer.
  • The term of the fifth Lok Sabha was extended for six years.
  • In the 17th Lok Sabha, so far, 150 Bills have been introduced and 131 have been passed (excluding Finance and Appropriation Bills).
  • The latest Budget session was the sixth shortest Budget session since 1952.
  • The Motion of Thanks on the President’s Address was the only item discussed in the latest session.
