The government is working on a plan to make two important ordinances into law with the introduction of several bills in the coming Parliament session. An ordinance was issued in September to amend the Income Tax Act, 1961 and the Finance Act, 2019. At the same time, the second ordinance was also issued in September which deals with the ban on sale, manufacture and storage of e-cigarettes and similar devices.
Let us tell you that in the first session of the seventeenth Lok Sabha, a record of 35 bills were passed in this session consisting of 37 sittings.
