A number of parties including BJP and Left have already given notices for moving a motion under this rule and the House will take up the discussion on December 6 and 7.
Earlier, during the all-party meeting on November 26, Trinamool Congress had said it would leave it to the presiding officer under which rule the discussion should be held.
Trinamool Chief Whip in Upper House Derek O'Brien told PTI, "This makes quite clear our constant stand on multi-brand retail. There is no flip flop."
Trinamool's efforts to move a no-confidence motion against the government in Lok Sabha on the FDI issue had failed as it could not muster the required number.
