It will now take a month for the constitution amendment bill to be endorsed in the Legislature-Parliament. The Parliament Secretariat has informed that it would take a minimum 15 days for a bill to complete all its process.
"After tabling the bill in the House, it needs to be published for the information of general people. The bill then will be put for theoretical discussion and it will take around a month to complete the whole procedure including amendment," said spokesperson of the Parliament Secretariat Bharatraj Gautam.
