A Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on Capital Acquisitions in Indian Air Force, which includes the details of the Rafale deal, was tabled in the Rajya Sabha Wednesday, the last day of the Budget session. The report disclosed that the NDA’s deal for 36 Rafale aircraft is 2.86 per cent cheaper than the deal which was negotiated by the UPA government, reported news agency PTI.

Wednesday, which also marks the conclusion of the 16th Lok Sabha ahead of the General Elections, is jampacked with several contentious Bills such as the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019, and the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018, listed for business. The Bills, already passed by the Lower House, will lapse if not ratified by Rajya Sabha members. The Aadhaar and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2019, is also likely to be tabled today.

In the Lok Sabha, some of the Bills listed include The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill, 2019, The Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, 2018, and the Banning of Unregulated Deposit Schemes Bill, 2018.
