Education reforms and 10 other bills pending for more than a year

Licenses and Regulations

This is the case even as the parliamentary standing committee has discussed and the Cabinet has passed most of these bills.

Human resource development minister Kapil Sibal has also met and ensured a buy-in by the opposition leaders in Parliament. The pending bills aim to address vital issues of accessibility, quality and availability of education centres in the country.

In some cases, the legislation has been passed by the Lok Sabha and awaits the approval of the Rajya Sabha. The government has not even been able to list these bills because it does not enjoy a majority in the Upper House, said a senior Cabinet minister, who did not wish to be identified.

“These are matters that need laws and cannot be done through short-term procedures like ordinances,” the minister said.
