After Mamata expressed reservations of TMC on the bill, the government may defer its tabling in Parliament, sources claimed.
On Monday, Dec 19, Pranab Mukherjee, Finance Minister held a meeting with senior BJP leaders LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Yashwant Sinha to discuss these two legislations, Companies Bill and the Pensions Fund Regulatory Development Authority Bill. BJP had assured its support over the Pension Bill.
The standing committee presided by Yashwant Sinha had favoured the quantum of FDI in the Pension sector at 26 per cent and allow such investments to flow into India through a specific provision in the Bill.
Earlier also, Mamata has opposed the foreign direct investment in retail. This time also she demanded reservations for her party.
