The winter session of Parliament is likely to begin in the first week of December in the old building. According to sources, it is proposed to hold the session from December 7 to 29. The final and formal decision regarding the dates will be taken by the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs. The winter session usually starts around the third week of November every year, but this time it is going to start in the month of December. Around 20 sittings take place during the session. However, in 2017 and 2018 the session was held in December.

Session will start in old building

Sources said that while the session is likely to be held in the old building itself, the government is also contemplating a symbolic inauguration of the new building to be constructed at a cost of over Rs 1,200 crore by the end of this month or early December. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone of the new Parliament building in December 2020. It is being manufactured by Tata Projects Limited. The government had earlier set a target to complete the new building before the start of the winter session, but some construction work may go ahead as scheduled.

Delay in assembly elections

According to sources, the first Parliament session of 2023 i.e. the budget session can be held in the new building. Elections to the Gujarat assembly will be held on December 1 and 5. Counting of votes in both the states of Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh will take place on December 8. It is being said that due to the dates of the elections, this time the winter session is likely to start from December 7. The government was aiming to complete the construction of the new building before the start of the winter session, but some construction work may go ahead of schedule.
