Modi govt. plans for a special parliament session in September as GST clogs in mind

Government is planning over to call a special session of Parliament sometime in the second week of September to pass the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty Second) Amendment Bill, 2015 or the Goods and Services Tax Bill- and is in talks with all political parties to get the requisite 2/3 majority in Rajya Sabha where the NDA is in a minority.

The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, headed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, had decided against holding over  the monsoon session of Parliament to keep the option open of holding a special session at short notice to pass the crucial Bill.

Meanwhile, government is in the process of reaching out to political parties to win their support for the Bill. Once the government is sure of the 2/3 majority of those present and voting, the meeting of the CCPA would be convened to fix the dates and finalize it.
