The House was adjourned sine die. The General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Bill, 2021, was also passed. Rajya Sabha later took up the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine (Amendment) Bill, 2021 & the National Commission for Homoeopathy (Amendment) Bill, 2021.  As the General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Bill, 2021 was brought to the table for discussion, the Opposition protested, asking “that the Chair must take the sense of the House”.
