Black money, OBC reports in Parliament on Monday

New Delhi: The black money report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance will be tabled in both the Houses of Parliament on Monday by their respective secretary generals. The committee's 73rd report deals with "status of unaccounted income/wealth inside and outside the country -- a critical analysis (a preliminary report)."

A note on the Parliament website says the report was presented to then Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on March 28 when the previous Lok Sabha was not in session and she had ordered publication and circulation of the report. Another report similarly received on March 9 and circulated on the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) will also be tabled in the two Houses on Monday.

The report was filed by the Parliamentary Committee on Welfare of OBCs on "Rationalisation of creamy layer in employment for OBCs in services and posts under the control of Government of India, including Union Territories, PSUs, etc." While both the Houses will take up on Monday a resolution to thank the President on his address to both the Houses on June 20, three Bills are listed for introduction in the Lok Sabha to replace the Ordinances relating to J&K Reservation, Amendments in Aadhaar and Other Laws and amendment to Special Economic Zones Act, 2005.

Home Minister Amit Shah, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Commerce and Industries Minister Piyush Goyal respectively. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi will be also piloting on Monday the motions for elections of five most important Parliamentary committees, namely Public Accounts Committee (PAC), Estimates Committee and Public Undertakings Committee (PUC), Committee on Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, and Committee on Welfare of OBCs. Except for the Estimates Committee, there will be motions urging the Rajya Sabha to nominate members to the other four comm-ittees. Terms of all five committees will be up to April 30 as the rules require election of these committees every year.
