  • Lok Sabha has approved the Appropriation Bill, allowing the central government to withdraw funds from the Consolidated Fund of India for its business needs and the implementation of various programmes.
  • Speaker Om Birla passed the bill after passing the guillotine, which is a legislative mechanism designed to approve the rapid passage of pending grant requests without discussion.
  • The Appropriation Bill is a money bill that allows the government to withdraw funds from the Consolidated Fund of India within a financial year to cover its expenses.
  • According to Article 114 of the Constitution, the government can withdraw funds from the consolidated fund only if it is approved by the Parliament.
  • To put it simply, the “Finance Bill” contains provisions on financing government expenditures, while the “Appropriation Bill” specifies the amount and purpose of withdrawals.
