Categories and Passage of the Bills

The most important function of the Parliament is making laws. The legislative procedure is initiated in the form of a Bill.

A Bill is a proposed legislation. It becomes a law when it is assented to by the President.

These Bills are classified as Ordinary, Financial, Money and the Constitutional Amendment Bills. The Bills are of two types-the Government Bills and the Private Memberีšs Bills. Money, Financial and an Ordinary Bill under Art. 3 are essentially the Government Bills because these can only be introduced on the recommendation of the President. Other Bills can be introduced by private Members also (any Member other than a Minister is a private Member) . The procedure for the passage of both types of Bills is the same.
