‘Budget Session proceedings satisfactory’

 Hoping that the Aadhar Bill would return to the Lok Sabha after discussions in Rajya Sabha, Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Wednesday said the proceedings in Parliament during the first half of the Budget Session were 'satisfactory'.

 
Government hopes that the bill will be returned to Lok sabha after discussion in Upper House of Parliament, Naqvi was quoted as saying in a news report. 
 
He also added that there were several bills and issues that were required to be discussed, but overall it was satisfactory
 
Lok Sabha on Friday passed Aadhar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies, Benefits and Services) Bill 2016, after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley moved the key bill for consideration.
 
Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, had objected to bill being introduced as a money bill, saying it should not come as a money bill.
 
In response, Finance Minister Jaitley said bill is different from what Opposition is talking about.
 
He added that substance of bill is that whoever gets subsidies will have to produce Aadhaar.
 
Bill is aimed at giving legal backing for transferring government subsidies and benefits to targeted people.
