The Lok Sabha adjourned sine die on January 8, 2019 as scheduled and the sitting of Rajya Sabha got extended by one day. Three sittings were cancelled for Christmas and New Year. Both Houses discussed and adopted the statutory resolution to impose President’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir. Issues related to Rafale deal and the supplementary demands for grants were also discussed in Lok Sabha. Both Houses adjourned their proceedings several times due to continuous disruptions on the issues related to Rafale deal and dam on Cauvery river. The Speaker of Lok Sabha suspended 49 members for creating disruptions.

16 legislative Bills were introduced during the session and 4 were passed other than an Appropriation Bill.  Four Bills were withdrawn.  Lok Sabha worked for 46% of the scheduled hours and Rajya Sabha for 26%.
