Cannot accept amendments to Finance Bill: Jaitley

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said he cannot accept the amendments suggested by the Rajya Sabha to the Finance Bill.

Replying to a short debate on the amendments in the Lok Sabha, the Minister said: “I can’t accept five amendments suggested by Rajya Sabha to the Finance bill.”

Embarrassing the government, the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday suggested five amendments in the Finance Bill and returned it to the Lok Sabha.

The government had moved as many as 40 amendments in the Finance Bill, that were added to the bill at the last moment.
