The monsoon session of the Parliament of India began on Monday; however, it was quickly overshadowed by the fact that legislators had to vote in the Presidential elections, as well as protests by the opposition over price rises and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Both Houses were quickly adjourned as a result, with little productive activity to show for it. Both the Houses will meet again on Tuesday.

The Central Government has listed over two dozen Bills for introduction in this monsoon session of Parliament.

Here's a look at some of them:

* Cantonment Bill: The government is set to bring a bill during the upcoming Monsoon session of Parliament to enhance efficiency in running cantonments across the country. According to an official note, the bill also intends to facilitate “ease of living” in cantonments. At present, 62 cantonments are operating across the country and most of them have a civil-military mix in their demography.

* Multi-State Cooperative Societies (Amendment) Bill: The Multi-State Cooperative Societies (Amendment) Bill seeks to rationalise the government's role in cooperatives and increase participation in the working of the multi-state cooperative societies, so as to increase public faith in these societies and create a conducive environment for their growth and development.

* Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill: The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill, 2021 was introduced in Lok Sabha on July 26, 2021.
