Govt offices and backlogs go hand in hand. The most adverse impact of the backlog probably is the stalling of the GST legislation.Additionally, demonetization has taken up most of the winter session’s time productively and non-productively.
In order to solve this lockdown, the government is now mulling to call a special short session of Parliament to discuss Central GST and Integrated GST Bills, according to a report in The Indian Express.
The report said the government may call a meeting of Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) on Friday to discuss ways of getting these important bills passed in Parliament. However, the government has decided against extending the ongoing session. During the CCPA meet to be chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh may also consider calling an early budget session of Parliament as the government plans to advance budget presentation to February 1 and complete the allocation by March 31.
