The Winter Session of Parliament will commence from 18th of next month. It will conclude on 13th of December. Official sources said the Parliamentary Affairs Ministry has communicated to the secretariats of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha in this regard.
Last week, the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs had met under the chairmanship of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh to decide on the dates of the next session.
A number of bills are likely to be taken up during the winter session. Further, two crucial ordinances are on the list to be converted into law during the session.
One ordinance reducing the corporate tax rate for new and domestic manufacturing companies to arrest a slowdown in the economy and boost growth was issued in September to give effect to amendments in the Income Tax Act, 1961 and Finance Act, 2019. The second ordinance, also issued in September, banned the sale, manufacture and storage of e-cigarettes and similar products.
