Ordinary Bills

  • All bills, except money bills, are introduced in either House of Parliament. A bill, after debate, is passed by a majority vote and sent to the other House. In case certain amendments are suggested in the other House, it is sent back to the House where the bill had originated for reconsideration.

  • The bill is regarded as passed by both the Houses if the original House accepts the amendments of the other House. It is then presented to the President for his assent:
    1. If the President gives his assent to the bill, it then becomes an Act.
    2. If the President withholds his assent, the bill is nullified.
    3. If the President neither gives his assent nor withholds his assent, he may return it to the Parliament for reconsideration.
    4. If, however, the Houses pass the bill again after reconsideration, the President is bound to give his assent.

Money Bills

  • A money bill can originate only in the Lok Sabha on the recommendation of the President. After it has been passed by the Lok Sabha, it is sent to the Rajya Sabha. The Rajya Sabha is given 14 days to make its recommendation. If it fails to do so within 14 days, the bill is considered as passed by both Houses. If the Rajya Sabha returns the bill with its recommendation, it is up to the Lok Sabha to accept or reject the recommendations. Even if the Lok Sabha rejects the recommendations of the Rajya Sabha, the bill is considered to have been passed.
