New Delhi: The Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulations) Bill will reportedly be introduced in Parliament on Wednesday after Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya was unable to table it on Monday and Tuesday amid Opposition protests. It was on the agenda on the first day of the Winter Session on Monday, but could not be presented as Opposition parties on Tuesday staged a walkout from both Houses of Parliament in protest against the suspension of 12 lawmakers from the Rajya Sabha.
The proposed law seeks to regulate assisted reproductive technology services.
Furthermore, the Dam Safety Bill – which seeks to provide for the surveillance, inspection, operation, and maintenance of dams across the country- has also been on the agenda since Monday but could be discussed in the Rajya Sabha. The bill was passed in Lok Sabha in 2019 and is still pending in Rajya Sabha.
Reports of committees including those related to information technology, science, and climate change are also expected to be tabled in Parliament today. Nineteen ministries are scheduled to take up questions.
