Legislature

A deadlock between the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha calls for a joint sitting of the Parliament during the passage of

  • 1. Ordinary Legislation
  • 2. Money Bill
  • 3. Constitution Amendment Bill

Select the correct answer using the codes given below:

  1. 1, 2 and 3
  2. 1 only
  3. 2 and 3 only
  4. 1 and 3 only

Answer

A Money Bill can be introduced only in the Lok sabha on the recommendations of the president. The Rajya sabha cannot initiate a Money Bill nor can it reject or amend it after passage by the Lok sabha.

Constitution Amendment Bills have to be passed in each House of Parliament by a special majority. In case of any disagreement between the two Houses of Parliament on a Constitution Amendment Bill, there cannot be a joint sitting of the Houses of Parliament on the Bill as article 368 of the Constitution requires each House to pass the Bill by the prescribed special majority.

The correct option is B.
