Question: Discuss the procedure to be followed by the Union Parliament in passing a Non-Money Bill
Answer: Procedure in passing a Non-Money Bill by Union Parliament:
The Non-Money Bills or Ordinary Bills can be introduced on either House of the Parliament. Approval of both the Houses of the Parliament is necessary to pass the Ordinary Bill. In case of difference, there is a provision of joint sitting of both the Houses.
In each House, an Ordinary Bill has to pass through these following stages:
(i) First reading, (ii) Second reading, (iii) Committee stage, (iv) Report stage, (v) Third reading.
Then the Bill goes for assent to the President. If the President returns the Bill for reconsideration and the Parliament repasses it again, the President has to give his assent to the Bill and it is considered as passed.
