|Consider the following statements regarding the various kinds of Cut Motions that are available to Parliament, while voting for the demands for grants in the budget.|
|1. In a Policy Cut Motion, members can also advocate an alternative policy.|
|2. Passage of Token Cut Motion leads to the reduction of the amount granted by Rs.1.|
|3. Cut Motions can also be moved on the expenditure charged on the Consolidated Fund of India, if the members feel that there is scope for economy on such expenditures.|
|Which of the statement(s) given above is/are correct?|
A) Only 1
B) 1 and 2
C) All of these
D) None of these
Correct Answer: A
Solution :[a] In Policy Cut motion, members not only express their disapproval of a particular policy, but can also advocate an alternative policy. Token Cut motion leads to the reduction of expenditure by Rs.100 and it is used to ventilate a specific grievance that is within the sphere of responsibility of the government. Statement 3 is incorrect because expenditure charged on the Consolidated Fund of India are not votable in Parliament and even Cut Motions cannot be moved on them.
