Correct Option is Business Advisory

Financial Committees are permanent (constituted periodically) and work on a continuous basis 1. Public Accounts Committee This committee was set up first in 1921 under the provisions of Government of India Act of 1919 and has since been in existence. At present, it consists of 22 members (15 from the Lok Sabha and 7 from the Rajya Sabha). 2. Estimates Committee Origin of this committee can be traced to the standing finance committee set up in 1921. The first Estimates Committee in the postindependence era was constituted in 1950 on the recommendation of John Mathai, the then finance minister. Originally, it had 25 members but in 1956 its membership was raised to 30. All the thirty members are from Lok Sabha only. 3. Committee on Public Undertakings This committee was created in 1964 on the recommendation of the Krishna Menon Committee. Its membership was raised to 22(15 from the Lok Sabha and 7 from the Rajya Sabha). Business Advisory Committee This committee regulates the programme and time table of the House. It allocates time for the transaction of legislative and other business brought before the House by the government. The Lok Sabha committee consists of 15 members including the Speaker as its chairman. In the Rajya Sabha, it has 11 members including the Chairman as its ex-officio chairman. Hence only option c is incorrect.
