With the passage of 25 bills and introduction of six others, Rajya Sabha records showed 100% productivity during the monsoon session that was held amid the Covid-19 pandemic and adjourned sine die on Wednesday. This was also the second-shortest monsoon session of the Upper House since 1952. Instead of the scheduled 18 sittings, only 10 sittings were held between September 14 and 23. The House was scheduled to wind up on October 1.


Chairperson M Venkaiah Naidu said the session was being concluded ahead of time as Covid-19 continued to challenge humankind across the globe nine months after its first outbreak was recorded.


He said Rajya Sabha recorded the highest productivity in its last four sessions consistently and it “is praiseworthy”. In his closing remarks, Naidu said a record amount of time (about 58% of the number of business hours) was spent on bills during the session, as against an average of 28% over the years.


A high timeshare for bills, he said, justified the purpose of this session in which the question hour was dispensed with.


Opposition parties had protested the doing away of the Question Hour, pointing out that it infringed upon their right to seek answers from the government.
