The Modi government has introduced 9 bills in the budget session of the 16th Lok Sabha. And if everything goes as proposed then here are the 10 important bills that will be considered in this session as compiled by the Economic Times.



1. The Anti-Hijacking (Amendment) Bill, 2010



It is necessary to make the provisions of the existing statute stricter and to award death penalty to the person who causes death of a passenger or member of crew of an aircraft while committing the act of hijacking of aircraft. Such a measure will act as a deterrent to those who plan or attempt to hijack aircrafts.



The proposed law would also give teeth to concerned agencies or security forces to bring to a halt a aircraft or prevent its take-off and also allow the Indian Air Force to move quickly its fighters to intercept a hijacked aircraft and force it to land.
