The Centre has listed 24 bills including the Cantonment Bill and the Multi-State Cooperative Societies Amendment Bill and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code Amendment Bill for introduction at the Monsoon Session, which is due to begin on Monday.
According to a bulletin from the Lok Sabha Secretariat, the Cantonment Bill would allow for greater development goals in alignment with all the national municipalities and facilitate “ease-of-living” in the cantonments.
The Multi-State Cooperative Societies Amendment Bill aims to rationalize government’s role within cooperatives and increase participation to the work of multi-state cooper societies. This will increase public trust in these societies and create a favorable environment that fosters their growth and development.
The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code Amendment (Amendment Bill) seeks to strengthen that Code by adding provisions on cross-border Insolvency and other amendments for a time bound resolution of stressed assets and maximising their value.
The other bills being introduced include the Coffee (Promotion and Development) Bill and the Development of Enterprises and Services Hubs Bill. This bill proposes to amend the Special Economic Zones Act of 2005 and make rules.
The government also has the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Amendment Bill. This bill proposes to rationalise prohibited areas and make other amendments.
The Kalakshetra Fund (Amendment) Bill and Old Grant (Regulation) Bill were also included for introduction.
The Press and Registration of Periodicals Bill, Mines and mineral (Development and Regulation) (Amendment) Bill, Energy Conservation (Amendment) Bill, Trafficking of Persons (Protection, Care and Rehabilitation) Bill, and Family Courts (Amendment) Bill can all be listed for introduction during this session.
