Describe the procedure followed by the Union Parliament in passing an ordinary bill.
An ordinary bill can be introduced in either of the two Houses of the Parliament. Approval of both the houses is necessary for passing a bill. In case of disagreement between the two Houses, a majority vote is taken in the joint meeting of both the Houses. After a bill is approved by both the Houses, it is sent to the President for her/his consent. Once the consent is provided, the bill becomes law.
