AAP government to table 5 bills in budget session

New Delhi, (IANS) The eight-day budget session of Delhi assembly will begin on Tuesday with the AAP government set to table five bills.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also holds the finance portfolio, will present the budget on June 25.

After assuming power in February, the AAP government had presented an interim budget in March.

Among the bills to be moved during the coming session is the Delhi Legislative Assembly Members (prevention of Disqualification) (Amendment) Bill, 2015, seeking to keep the office of parliamentary secretaries out of the “office of profit” category.

An amendment bill to the Delhi Urban Slum Improvement Act will also be presented for the rehabilitation of shanties which came up between March 31, 2002 and January 1, 2006.

Besides, a bill to make Netaji Subhash Institute of Technology a university will also be presented.

Delhi Value Added Tax (Amendment) Bill, 2015 and Delhi Appropriation Bill, 2015 will also be moved.
