Dissolution And Its Effects

Dissolution And Its Effects

Rajya Sabha, being a permanent House, is not subject to dissolution. Only the Lok Sabha is subject to dissolution.
 
  • When the Lok Sabha is dissolved, all business including bills, motions, resolutions, notices, petitions etc. pending before it or its committees lapse. They (to be pursued further) must be reintroduced in the newly constituted Lok Sabha. [Prorogation does not affect the bills or any other business pending before the house. However all pending notices (other than those for introducing bills) lapse on prorogation.]
  • 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 Lok Sabha lapses (whether originating in the Lok Sabha or transmitted to it by the Rajya Sabha).
  • A bill passed by the Lok Sabha 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 Lok Sabha, does not lapse
  • A bill pending in the Rajya Sabha but not passed by the Lok Sabha does not lapse
  • A bill passed by both Houses but pending assent of the president does not lapse
  • A bill passed by both Houses but returned by the president for reconsideration of Houses does not lapse
