New Delhi: The Winter Session of Parliament will be held from November 18 to December 13. Sources said that the decision was conveyed to the secretariats of both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha by the parliamentary affairs ministry.

The government is likely to introduce several major bills, including the Citizenship Amendment Bill, nullifying the National Registrar of Citizens to a considerable extent.

 

Two crucial ordinances are also on the list to be converted into laws during the session, one the ordinance reducing the corporate tax rate to reverse the slowdown, issued in September, and the other banning the sale and manufacture e-cigarettes.

This, however, will be a very short session, compared to the last few years, when winter sessions were convened on November 21 and ended in the first week of January.

The 20-day session is the first after the dilution of Article 370 and the complete shutdown in Kashmir.

The government, for the first time in six years, is comfortably placed in the Rajya Sabha, with a fractured Opposition and numbers in its favour and is unlikely to face much of a hurdle in passing legislation.
