According to this the marriage amendment bill if not passed in this session will lapse...see point no (i)

pls correct if i m wrong


The HMA amendment (IRBM) bill was originally introduced in Lok Sabha and not Rajya Sabha so the abovementioned explanation in the TOI article is not valid for this bill....



I had earlier written that  "The Bill is lapsed. Period."
I correct my mistake. The earlier bill  is reintroduced in RS as THE MARRIAGE LAWS (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2013 in Rajya sabha. 


So Bill is NOT lapsed yet. (as it is introduced first in RS)

So once elections take place this issue is going to haunt again.

lok sabha website also may reflect it after a few days.

I think both the billss will lapse. So there was much stress on passing women reservation bill in this session itself

Any final update on this......can anyone confirm if the bill has actually lapsed or not ?? Experts please opine ??


Everybody is waiting for experts opinions on this...experts pls reply?
