    I Select/Joint Committees on Bills constituted by the House(s) on specific motion to consider and report on Bills; and
    II Committees which are constituted from time to time to enquire into and report on specific subjects.

  • These are:
    • Business Advisory Committee, General Purposes Committee, Committee on Government assurances, House Committee, Committee on Petitions, Committee on Subordinate Legislation, Committee on Papers Laid on the Table, Committee of Privileges, Committee on Rules, Committee on Ethics, Committee on Provision of Computers to Members of Rajya Sabha, Committee on Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme and the Department-related Standing Committees.

Passage Of a Bill

  • A Bill while being considered has to undergo three stages in each House of Parliament.
  • The first stage is the Introduction, which is done on a motion moved by either a Minister or a Member.
  • During the second stage any of the following motions can be moved: that the Bill be taken into consideration; or that it be referred to a Select Committee of Rajya Sabha; or that it be referred to a Joint Committee of the two Houses; or that it be circulated for the purpose of eliciting opinion thereon.
  • Thereafter, the Bill is taken up for the clause-by-clause consideration as introduced or as reported by the Select/Joint Committee.
  • The third stage is confined to the discussion on the motion that the Bill be passed and the Bill is passed/rejected either by voting or voice vote (or returned to Lok Sabha, in the case of a Money Bill).
