parliamentNEW DELHI: The winter session of Parliament will start from November 24 and conclude on December 23 during which the government may try to push many key legislations including the GST bill and Insurance amendment bill that seeks to hike FDI limit in insurance sector to 49%.

The Election Commission, meanwhile, announced biennial elections for 11 Rajya Sabha seats. The biennial elections will be held on November 20. Ten out of 11 seats, which will fall vacant on November 25, are from Uttar Pradesh while the remaining one is from Uttarakhand. Out of the 10 in UP, six are at present occupied by the Bahujan Samaj Party. 

The winter session will have 22 sittings in which four days have been earmarked for Private Members' business. There are 67 bills pending before Parliament – eight before the Lok Sabha and 59 before the Rajya Sabha — are pending and the government will push for passage of "at least 30 to 35" legislations, a senior minister said.
