The month-long monsoon session of Parliament is likely to commence from July 12.

According to one of the proposals before the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA), the session will begin from July 12 and conclude on August 11, according to government sources.

The final call on the dates will be taken by the committee, headed by Union home minister Rajnath Singh, after June 20, the sources said.

Sources told IANS the session was being convened earlier due to the presidential election in which MPs and MLAs are voters. A session at that time will ensure that all the MPs are in Delhi for the polling. An MP can also vote in his home state where MLAs generally vote.
