The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) has recommended holding the session from 17 July to 11 August, according to sources in the committee.

The CCPA meeting, that was chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, was held on Friday evening after National Democratic Alliance (NDA) presidential nominee Ram Nath Kovind filed his nomination papers.

Although the House might not function on the first day of the session on account of death of two sitting Members of Parliament — Lok Sabha member Vinod Khanna and Rajya Sabha member Pallavi Reddy.

Police firing on protesting farmers in Mandsaur, demands for farm loan waivers and ban on cattle slaughter at animal markers could be among the issues Opposition parties would raise in the House
