Abstract: In contemporary India, tremendous changeshas occurred in parliamentary proceedings, most of the quality time of Parliament arebeing unnecessarily utilized on political controversies, disorderrowdiness, and theatrics. The reasons for disruptions can be altogetherly different like; discussion on matters of controversy, grandstanding by the leaders and members of the opposition, disruptions sometimes help ruling party evade responsibility, lack of dedicated time for unlisted discussion or scarce resort to disciplinary powers etc.There is an immediate need to fully overhaul parliamentary functioning in India. It will need changes in the constitution and the rules of procedures of Parliament. This paper is an attempt to explore the existing studies and analyze the extent of disruptions in the parliamentary proceedings and to suggest the viable measures for minimizing the existing trend of distractions so to save the spirit and ethos of Indian parliament.
