Further, Union Minister of Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju is also scheduled to introduce the High Court and Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Amendment Bill, 2021.

The winter session commenced on Monday when the 'Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021' was passed by both Houses of Parliament. Lok Sabha was adjourned thrice on the very first day of the winter session due to the ruckus created by the Opposition.
