The Monsoon Session of the Parliament to continue on the second day from 11 am on Thursday and major pending Bills are expected to be passed in the Upper House. The Union government is likely to introduce and pass crucial Bills and among the major one is ‘Triple Talaq Bill‘.

Among the Bills that passed with majority in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday were State Banks (Repeal and Amendment) Bill 2017 and Requisitioning and Acquisition of Immovable Property (Amendment) Bill 2017. Also, on today’s agenda key Bills like RTI Amendment Bill and Eco Offendness Bill are likely to be passed. As there has already been discussion held earlier on these Bills in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha in the previous sessions of the Parliament, ruckus over the issue is likely to be expected.

With the RTI Amendment Bill that is pending, if passed, gives power to the Centre over the commission to decide the wages of the government employees. And Eco Offendness Bill, if passed, will help in curbing bank frauds. Under this no one would be able to leave the country with public money and strict action would be imposed. However, a loophole says that this Bill can only be implemented on frauds over Rs 100 crore.

Opposition had already said that they would bring a no-confidence motion in the Parliament over relevant issues like mob lynching, farmers issues, women’s safety and others, which was approved on Wednesday. On Friday ruckus is expected in both the houses. In this current Session, 6 Bills to replace Ordinances to be passed, with 18 sittings in 24 days.
