Disruptions in the Parliament have caused a loss of over 133 crores to the exchequer. The Parliament has functioned for only 18 hours out of the stipulated 107 hours since the start of the monsoon session.

As reported, the Lok Sabha has functioned for nearly 21% while the Rajya Sabha functioned less than 13% of the scheduled time. The monsoon session of the Parliament has been marred by the Pegasus row, with the opposition demanding a full-fledge debate and formation of an enquiry into the snooping scandal.

MPs from the opposition parties have trooped into the well of the house causing pandemonium in the Parliament. Repeated sloganeering by the opposition has led to the adjournment of the houses.

If the time is calculated, the Lok Sabha has managed to conduct business for around 7 hours of possible 54 hours. Similarly, the Rajya Sabha carried its business for only 11 hours of possible 53 hours. A total of 89 hours have been lost due to the deadlock.

Since the beginning of the monsoon session, the opposition MPs have blocked the functioning and caused uproars. They had been so unruly that it had to the suspension of one TMC Rajya Sabha MP for the entire session.

The monsoon session of the Parliament that began on July 19 failed to transact any business and is scheduled to end on August 13.
