a money bill or supply bill is a bill that solely concerns taxation or government spending (also known as appropriation of money), as opposed to changes in public law. It varies from a normal bill in the legislative procedures. Let me explain it in simple way.
1.A money bill can be introduced only in the Lok Sabha, but an ordinary bill can be introduced in the either of the two houses.
2.The Rajya Sabha can just make recommendations in the case of a money bill, but if there is dispute, it is followed by a joint session.
3. President needs to give an assent for a money bill, but he/she can send an ordinary bill back to the parliament for reconsideration.
4. A money bill requires prior consent of the President before being introduced, but an ordinary bill doesn't.
I hope that was helpful!
