The budget session of Parliament will be held from July 7 to August 14 and the first general budget of the Narendra Modi government will be presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on July 10.

The rail budget will be presented on July 8, while the Economic Survey will be released on July 9, the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) decided on Monday.

The CCPA decided that Bills to replace ordinances, including the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities (Amendment) ordinance, the one on Polavaram project, the TRAI Act (Amendment) ordinance and the one on SEBI, will be brought on a priority basis for consideration in the session, official sources said.

The ordinances have to be converted into Bills before third week of July.

The over month-long session will have a total of 28 sittings.

The opposition is likely to rake up the issue of hike in rail passenger fares and freight rates ahead of the presentation of the rail budget.
