A set of portfolio-linked parliamentary standing committees was allotted to the Rajya Sabha, which was possible only because of Narayanan. In fact, in 1989, the then Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Rabi Rai, removed the three-subject committees. The work of these committees was to examine the budget to be made in the departments of the central government. In this case, KR Narayanan had said that the role of Rajya Sabha should also be there in doing this. After raising this question, a meeting of the Rules Committees of both the houses was called for the first time in Parliament.
