  • Passage of Bills
  • When the Lok Sabha is dissolved, all business including bills, motions, resolutions, notices, petitions and so on pending before it or its committees lapse. They (to be pursued further) must be reintroduced in the newly constituted LokSabha. However, some pending bills and all pending assurances that are to be examined by the Committee on Government Assurances do not lapse on the dissolution of the Lok Sabha.
  • The position with respect to lapsing of bills is as follows:
  • A bill pending in the LokSabha lapses (whether originating in the LokSabha or transmitted to it by the Rajya Sabha).
  • A bill passed by the LokSabha but pending in the Rajya Sabha lapses.
  • A bill not passed by the two Houses due to disagreement and if the president has notified the holding of a joint sitting before the dissolution of LokSabha, does not lapse.
  • A bill pending in the Rajya Sabha but not passed by the LokSabha does not lapse.
  • A bill passed by both Houses but pending assent of the president does not lapse. 6. A bill passed by both Houses but returned by the president for reconsideration of Houses does not lapse.
