Lok Sabha passes Finance Bill 2013-14

New Delhi, April 30 (IANS) The Lok Sabha Tuesday passed the Finance Bill for the 2013-14 fiscal with minor amendments, even as the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) walked out of the house protesting against Coalgate.

The bill was passed with 12 minor amendments.

The passage of the bill effectively brought to an end the budgetary process that started with the budget speech by the Finance Minister P Chidambaram Feb 28.

The bill will now go to the Rajya Sabha and then to the president for his assent.
