15th Lok Sabha

 

15th Lok Sabha

Members of the 15th Lok Sabha were elected during the 2009 general election in India. It was dissolved on 18 May 2014 by President Pranab Mukherjee.[1]

The government introduced a total of 222 Bills (apart from Finance and Appropriations Bills) in the 15th Lok Sabha. A total of 165 Bills were by passed by the House, including bills introduced in previous Lok Sabhas. According to data from PRS Legislative Research, if productivity was measured as the time that the House functioned as a proportion of the time they actually sat, the 15th Lok Sabha is the least productive in history. Productivity further decreases when measured in terms of the number of hours the House was originally scheduled to sit for.[2]
