Nari Shakti Vandan Bill Women Reservation Bill Know The Difference Between Act Ordinance And Bill
The Central Government has introduced the Nari Shakti Vandan Bill in the Lok Sabha. But there is still some time for it to become a law. Actually, a constitutional bill becomes a law when it is passed in both the houses and it gets the seal of consent of more than half of the states as well as the signature of the President and a notification is issued by the President for it. Only after this happens, it is implemented uniformly in the entire country.
However, whenever a bill comes in the Lok Sabha, words like Act, Bill, Law and Ordinance are mentioned. So today in this article we will tell you what is the difference between Act, Ordinance and Bill.
What is a bill?
Until a law is passed by the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, it is called a bill. For example, the Central Government has just introduced the Nari Shakti Vandan Bill in the Lok Sabha. When it is passed it will become an Act. However, if you are thinking that when a bill is passed by both the houses, it automatically becomes a law, then you are wrong. In fact, before any constitutional bill becomes a law, it becomes an Act and its final process makes it a law.
Now understand the difference between act and law
Actually, for any bill to become an Act, it has to be passed in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha first and along with it, it has to be approved by more than half of the states as well as signed by the President and a notification is issued by the President for it. It is also mandatory to go. Only after this entire process a bill becomes an act. However, this law is not accepted until it is implemented on the ground. To put it plainly, any bill has to pass three stages to become a law. That means first the bill, then the act and finally the law is made.
What is an ordinance?
If understood in simple language, an ordinance is a law made for a short period of time. For this, the government does not need immediate permission from the Parliament. However, later the government has to take the permission of the Parliament for this law. Let us tell you, on the advice of the Union Cabinet, the President can issue an ordinance under Article 123 whenever he wants. Whereas in the states, these ordinances are issued by the Governor.
