New Delhi: The next session of Parliament will be held from November 18 and will continue till December 13. The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs has communicated to the secretariats of both Houses in this regard.
Several bills are likely to be taken up during the Winter Session. Moreover, two important ordinances are on the list to be transformed into law during the session.
One ordinance reducing the corporate tax rate for new and domestic manufacturing companies to arrest slowdown in the economy and boost growth was issued in September to give effect to amendments in the Income Tax Act, 1961 and Finance Act, 2019.
The second ordinance, also issued in September, banned the sale, manufacture and storage of e-cigarettes and similar products.
