Joint Sitting of the Houses - Joint sitting of the Houses is convened for any deadlock between the two Houses over a Bill. - In the case of Money Bills, there is no question of a deadlock as the Rajya Sabha has a limited say in such matters. Only Lok Sabha can introduce the Money Bills. Rajya Sabha has to return the Money Bill to Lok Sabha within a period of fourteen days from its receipt. Rajya Sabha cannot amend the Money Bill directly; it can only recommend amendments to the Bill and Lok Sabha may either accept or reject all or any of the recommendations made by the Rajya Sabha. - There is no provision for a joint sitting in case of a deadlock over a Constitution Amendment Bill. - In the history of Parliament of India, there have been three occasions when both Houses of Parliament held a joint sitting to resolve deadlock on Bills between them, i.e., 1. 6 and 9 May 1961 on the Dowry Prohibition Bill, 1959; 2. 17 May 1978 on the Banking Service Commission (Repeal) Bill, 1977; and 3. 26 March 2002 on the Prevention of Terrorism Bill, 2002.
