On the day when Team Anna called off its fast, the Centre made it clear that the Lokpal Bill was not in its agenda for the ensuing Monsoon Session of Parliament.
Informing that the Bill has not been listed for consideration, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said on Friday that the select committee of the Rajya Sabha was looking into the Lokpal Bill.
He added that the committee was likely to submit its report on the first day of the last week of the session, which concludes on September 7.
The Lokpal Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha in December last year, debated in the Rajya Sabha and later referred to the select committee through a motion on May 21. Once Rajya Sabha passed it with amendments, the Bill would return to Lok Sabha.
The committee headed by Satyavrat Chaturvedi has not scheduled meetings till September 2, though it met twice last month.
Sources said the committee could meet any day during the Parliament session this month, but might not be able to meet the September first week deadline. The committee had sought public opinion on Lokpal Bill till July 15.
