Lok Sabha Session to Begin from April 25


NEW DELHI: The next session of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will begin on April 25 and is prone to proceed till May 13, similar to the second part of the budget session session of Parliament which was prorogued halfway.

“The eighth session of sixteenth Lok Sabha will commence from April 25. Subject to exigencies of government business the session is likely to conclude on May 13,” a Lok Sabha statement said.

A Rajya Sabha bulletin stated that, “Members are informed that the 239th Session of the Rajya Sabha will commence on Monday, April 25, 2016.”

The budget session of Lok Sabha was prorogued in a rare development, in the middle of it to enable the government to issue an Ordinance for authorising expenditure beyond April one in the centrally-ruled Uttarakhand in view of the political crisis in the state.

The Uttarakhand Appropriation (Vote on Account) Ordinance, 2016 was promulgated by the President, after the Centre issued it to authorise expenditure from April 1 in Uttarakhand, which is under President’s rule.
