"There is a lot of interest among the members in discussing the Budget. My suggestion is that increase the time to debate the Budget from 10 hours to 12 hours," said Ramesh.
The chairperson M Venkaiah Naidu said that "he will see into it".
The House also gave obituary reference and observed silence in respect of Mahendra Bahadur Singh who represented Madhya Pradesh.
