The Chairman said that during the session, the House had 17 sittings. A holiday was observed on the occasion of Guru Poornima.
He said that a total of 14 Bills were passed during the session, as against 10 passed during the previous two sessions. These included the Bill to grant Constitutional status to the national commission for other backward classes and the SC ST (Prevention of atrocities) Act Amendment bill.
''During the session, the members could address issues, with far-reaching implications. I complement all sections of the House for unanimously passing these two path-breaking legislations,'' Mr Naidu said.
The Chairman said that the House displayed its commitment to tackle corruption by passing the pending Prevention of Corruption Bill and more importantly, the Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill.
A few other Bills also sought to address hurdles in pursuing economic activities.
He said the productive working of the session had sent across a message that enough was enough.
''A message has been sent out that enough is enough. Two sessions of Parliament have been wasted and the image of Parliament has taken a beating and it cannot be repeated during this session. I am glad that this intent has resulted in positive results,'' Mr Naidu said.
He said that 24 hours had been lost during this session due to disruptions, but it was made up by the members by sitting for extra hours during 14 days.
He said that of the 17 sittings, there was no disruption during the first five sittings.
The Chairman said that 91 oral questions were answered during this session, while the House took up 120 Zero Hour mentions and 61 special mentions.
''A total of 27 hours were spent on discussing Bills,'' he said.
Discussion was held on one calling attention notice on misuse of social media, while a short duration discussion was held on the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill.
A highlight of the session was that Kehkashan Parween became the first woman member to preside during three Question Hours.
He also complemented Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad and leaders of other Opposition parties in contributing to a productive session.
