With just three working days left before the first part of the Budget session ends, the government plans to push through some key bills. These bills include the Whistle Blower Protection (Amendment) Bill, 2015 and Enemy Property (Amendment and Validation) Bill, 2016.

This week, the government will be keen that the Real Estate Bill passed by the Rajya Sabha on March 16, gets the nod of the Lok Sabha and the Aadhar bill passed by the Lok Sabha gets passed in Rajya Sabha. Besides these crucial bills, the government will want regular transaction of the scheduled financial business of the Houses.

In Lok Sabha, the business in remaining three days will include discussion and voting on Supplementary Demands for Grants (General) for 2015-16 and introduction, consideration and passing of related Appropriation Bill.

The legislative items proposed to be taken up in the Lower House are the consideration and passing of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, 2015 as passed by Rajya Sabha, the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Orders (Amendment) Bill, 2016 and the consideration of amendments made by Rajya Sabha in the Bureau of Indian Standards Bill 2015, as passed by Lok Sabha.

Besides the House could also take up the consideration of amendments made by Rajya Sabha in the National Waterways Bill, 2015, as passed by Lok Sabha and the introduction of the Regional Centre for Biotechnology Bill, 2016.

Besides the general discussion on Railway Budget in Rajya Sabha, the government plans to take up the Whistle Blower Protection (Amendment) Bill, the Enemy Property (Amendment and Validation) Bill, 2016, the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) Orders (Amendment) Bill 2016 and the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Bill, 2012.

The Lok Sabha will also take up scheduled financial business, including the Appropriation (Railways) Bill, 2016, besides a general discussion on the Budget.
