The monsoon session of Parliament will begin on July 20 this year.

The monsoon session of Parliament will begin on July 20 this year and will continue till August 20. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi made the announcement on his official Twitter handle.

The session is expected to be a stormy one as the Opposition parties were closing ranks to put up a united front against the Narendra Modi-led BJP in view of the Lok Sabha elections next year, PTI reported.

Joshi also urged political parties to contribute toward productive discussions during the session.

“Monsoon Session, 2023 of Parliament will commence from 20th July and continue till 11th August. Urge all parties to contribute towards productive discussions on Legislative Business and other items during the Monsoon Session," Pralhad Joshi tweeted.

The monsoon session of Parliament comes at a time Prime Minister Modi made a strong pitch for a Uniform Civil Code and amid moves to step up consultations on the issue.

The session is expected to commence in the old Parliament Building and later move to the new building, sources said. The new building was inaugurated by Modi on May 28.

In another tweet, the minister also informed that the monsoon session of Parliament 2023 will be spread across 23 days and will have 17 sittings. 

During the session, the central government is likely to bring a bill to replace the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Ordinance.

The Ordinance effectively nullified the Supreme Court judgment that gave the Delhi government greater legislative and administrative control over "services" matter.

The Centre's ordinance was introduced after the Supreme Court, in an order, handed over the transfer control of bureaucrats in Delhi to the elected government. The order excluded control over the police, public order and land.

The National Research Foundation Bill, cleared by the Union Cabinet, is also likely to be introduced. The proposed foundation will be a new funding agency to bolster the country's research competence in areas of science and technology.
