He added that in the last seven decades, the Parliament of India has made several socially and economically progressive laws in order to solve the problems of different sections of society. Referring to the extensive Committee system in the larger Indian parliamentary system, Birla said that the legislature is empowered due to the Committee system, leading to higher accountability and transparency; thereby strengthening parliamentary oversight.

In this context, he added that this year India is also organizing the P-20 Conference.
