What is Question Hour?

The Question Hour, which was scrapped during the Monsoon Session of the Parliament, will be restored during the Budget Session, which will commence on January 29 and end on February 15. Question Hour, which would last for one hour, would involve Members of Parliament asking questions of ministers and holding them accountable for their ministriesí functioning. This parliamentary device was used successfully in the past to expose financial irregularities and other issues.
