Budget session of Parliament to begin on Feb 17

January 29, 2003 20:14 IST

A three-month long Budget session of Parliament will begin on February 17 with an address to members of both Houses by President A P J Abdul Kalam on the opening day.

This will be Kalam's first address to the joint sitting of Parliament.

He will address the members of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha in the Central Hall of Parliament at 1100 hours, an official release said.

The session is likely to conclude on May 9, it said.

Both Houses will have a 23-day break from March 14 to April 6 to enable the standing committees to consider the demands for grants of ministries and departments and prepare their reports.

"Subject to exigencies of government business, the session is likely to conclude on May 9," the release said.
