New Delhi: The winter session of Parliament will commence from November 1 and continue till December 13.

The Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs on Monday announced to the secretariats of both houses of Parliament that the Winter Session will start next month.

The Parliament is expected to take up a number of bills in the upcoming session.

Two crucial ordinances are also on the list to be converted into law during the winter session of the Parliament.

One ordinance reducing the corporate tax rate for new and domestic manufacturing companies to arrest slowdown in the economy and boost growth was issued in September to give effect to amendments in the Income Tax Act, 1961 and Finance Act, 2019.

The second ordinance, also issued in September, banned the sale, manufacture and storage of e-cigarettes and similar products.

Last year, the Winter Session had begun on December 11 and lasted till January 8. That was the last full-fledged Parliament session ahead of this year’s Lok Sabha elections.
