New Delhi: The Winter session of Parliament will be held from November 29 to December 23 amid all COVID-19 protocols.

In the wake of the pandemic, the Winter session of Parliament was not held last year and all the subsequent sessions — Budget and Monsoon — were curtailed due to Covid.

Though, both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will sit simultaneously, the members will follow social distancing norms.

In the first few sessions, both the Houses used to meet at separate time to ensure that not many people were present inside the Parliament complex.

In the Winter session, those entering the complex and the main Parliament building will have to wear masks all the time and may have to undergo Covid test.

The Winter session assumes significance as it will be held just months before the assembly elections in five states, including politically-crucial Uttar Pradesh, which is seen as a semi-final for the 2024 general elections.
