One of the basic postulates of representative democracy is to see that governance is carried out according to the wishes of the people. In this context, Parliamentary control over the Executive assumes greater significance. It is aimed at ensuring that the Government delivers and performs to the best of the ability for public good.
The two most significant occasions for review of administration are provided by discussion on the Motion of Thanks on the President Address and the Budget. Along with these, a close and continuous check on governmental activities is exercised by Parliamentary Committees.
