Rajya Sabha Committee to mull changes in Procedures

Rajya Sabha chairman and Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu appointed a committee to revise the rules and procedure of conduct of business in the upper House of Parliament. The two-member committee will be headed by former Rajya Sabha Secretary General V.K. Agnihotri, while S.R. Dhaleta, a former Joint Secretary in the Union Ministry of Law and Justice, would serve as a member.

Although the committee would have a holistic relook at the rules, the provisions dealing with the disruptions in the House and the provisions, which seem “inadequate” as compared to the rules in Lok Sabha, would get special attention.

The committee has been mandated to submit its report in three months, and the panel may give some of the recommendations before the monsoon session of Parliament.
