FM makes last-ditch effort to push direct taxes code, insurance Bills
December, 27th 2013

With growth at a decade's low and elections round the corner, the UPA will make a last-ditch effort to push key reform Bills in the winter session of Parliament, including that for raising FDI limit in insurance to 49% from 26% and Direct Taxes Code. It will also take up the anti-graft Lokpal and women reservation Bills.

Other Bills that could be taken up in the session include the Coal Mines Bill and the Coal Regulatory Authority Bill, both of which are key to take reforms forward in the energy sector.

Although Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday appealed to all political parties for "best and optimal" use of the limited time (December 5-20) available for the winter session, chances are pretty high that UPA will again confront a stormy session with political
