Economic Survey 2018: All you need to know about today's big event


Facing flak from the Opposition on issues such as job creation and the plight of traders, the government is planning to push for several key bills including banning instant triple talaq, and granting constitutional status to the Commission on Other Backward Castes during the Parliament session. The government emphasized its focus on passing the triple talaq bill and urged for cooperation from leaders.

The Economic Survey, an annual publication of the Finance Ministry, is presented to both houses of Parliament during the Budget Session. After a recess of almost a month, the session will resume on March 5 and go on until April 6.

In a letter to Mahajan, Gandhi said a voluntary exercise like this "would send a positive message" about the "sensitivity that we possess as elected representatives", especially when inequality is widening in India, The Times of India reported. However, despite the order of the Supreme Court, the bill on triple talaq could not be passed by Parliament.

With an expectation that the Budget 2018 may include major announcements related to "housing for all" programme, the shares of DHFL are expected to surge.


Further concerns the opposition raised were over the jail term, and the provider for the family if the husband was in prison. But the bill could not be passed in the Rajya Sabha due to a deadlock over Opposition's demand seeking its reference to a Select Committee for close scrutiny.

"The honour of Muslim women have for decades been tied to political gains and losses". According to the reports, the ministry of Economic Survey tabled the annual development of the country before Parliament in this survey session. "After the law comes into force, the Muslim daughter and sister can live a life free of fear and with dignity", the Presidentsaid. Later, the President tweeted, "For decades, the dignity of Muslim women has remained captive to political cost-benefit. Now, the nation has the opportunity to release them from this situation", he added.

Kumar said the prime minister told leaders of various parties to make the system of committees a role model of participative democracy that could be adopted by state legislatures across the country.
