Aayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowal introduced The National Commission for Homoeopathy (Amendment) Bill, 2021 and The National Commission for Indian System of Medicine (Amendment) Bill, 2021 amidst opposition by Congress and TMC members.

Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Virendra Kumar introduced The Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Seventh Amendment) Bill, 2021 in the House that seeks to give the right to the states to have their own list of OBCs.

After the introduction of the three bills, Rajendra Agarwal, who was in the chair, adjourned the House till 1230 hrs.

Before taking up the question hour, Speaker Om Birla congratulated Indian track and field athlete Neeraj Chopra who scripted history by winning a gold medal in the men's javelin throw at the Tokyo Olympics on behalf of the House.
