Civics

Which of the two Houses is more powerful?


SOLUTION
The Lok Sabha exercises more powers than the Rajya Sabha: 
(i) Any ordinary law needs to be passed by both the Houses. But if there is a difference between the two Houses, the final decision is taken in a joint session in which members of the Houses sit together. Since the Lok Sabha has a larger number of members, their view is likely to prevail in such a meeting. 
(ii) The Lok Sabha exercises more powers in money matters. Once the Lok Sabha passes the budget of the government or any other money-related law, the Rajya Sabha cannot reject it. The Rajya Sabha can only delay it by 14 days or suggest changes in it. The Lok Sabha may or may not accept these changes.
