(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) In Depth: Committee on Petitions

Topic: Committee on Petitions

Topic Description:

Two MPs DR. VIRENDRA KUMAR and BRIJENDRA SINGH were slated to present Reports of the Committee on Petitions in the Lok Sabha.

Now the Committee on Petitions refers to a singular forum that offers citizens an opportunity to seek redressal for any legitimate grievance against the Government or any public authority.

In a Parliamentary democracy aggrieved citizens use offices of the Members of Parliament to get their grievances redressed.

Members of Parliament have at their disposal such parliamentary procedures and devices as Questions, Short Duration Discussions, Calling Attention Notices, Half-an-Hour Discussions, to ventilate people’s grievances.

But in addition to these, the two Houses of Parliament have their respective Committees on Petitions.

These provide yet another forum for citizens to secure redress against acts of injustice committed by any public authority. However this forum is available only in a limited number of cases. But nevertheless it has been an important link between the people and the Government.
