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.

However, should the GST fail to pass in the special session, if and when called, it could delay the implementation of the Bill beyond April 1, 2016, which the government has set. This could once again dampen the mood in Logistics stocks.
