There were reports that Parliamentary Affairs Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu was in talks with the opposition on convening the "second part of the Monsoon Session".

The session would primarily aim at clearing key Bills including the Goods and Services Tax (GST). It is largely believed that logistics players would benefit from the government's decision to implement the GST.
