The money bills have special features which make the procedure of their passage in parliament distinct. These special features are as follows: A money bill can be introduced / originated only in Lok Sabha {or in legislative assembly in case of bicameral legislature in states}. A money bill can be introduced only on prior recommendations of the President {or governor in case of state} A money bill can be a government bill only. No private bill can be a money bill. Once a money bill is passed in Lok Sabha, it is transmitted to Rajya Sabha for its consideration. But Rajya Sabha has limited powers in this context. It can neither reject nor amend the money bill. It can make only recommendations and has to return the bill with or without recommendations to Lok Sabha in 14 days. The Lok Sabha may or may not accept the recommendations of Rajya Sabha. Whether or not accepted those recommendations, thus returned bill is considered passed in both houses. If Rajya Sabha does not even return the bill in 14 days, it is considered passed in both houses. President can withhold assent to money bill but cannot return it for reconsideration of the Lok Sabha. There is no question of joint sitting in case of money bills because opinion of Rajya Sabha is immaterial in their case.
