The new Lokpal Bill will be introduced in the Lok Sabha tomorrow and will be taken up for discussion on December 27 during the extended session of Parliament.

Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Pawan Kumar Bansal today said eight hours have been earmarked for discussion in each House.

The Bill will be circulated to members before introduction tomorrow after securing the mandatory assent from the President since there was some financial implication in it.

The government has extended the Winter session of Parliament for three days from December 27 to 29, after a four-day Christmas break, for facilitating passage of the Lokpal Bill.

After its expected passage in the Lok Sabha on December 27, the Bill will come up in Rajya Sabha the next day.

Parliament will also discuss the Whistleblowers Bill and the Judicial Accountability Bill during the extended session.

While the Lok Sabha will discuss the Whistleblowers Bill along with the Lokpal Bill, the Upper House will discuss both the Bills separately.
