Women’s Reservation Bill

The Constitution (108th Amendment) Bill, commonly known as the Women’s Reservation Bill

  1. Aims for reserving 33% of the seats in the Lok Sabha and all state legislative assemblies for women.
  2. The Rajya Sabha had passed the bill on March 9, 2010, but it is still pending before the Lok Sabha.
  3. The Bill’s journey, however, began on September 12, 1996 – when it was introduced in the Lok Sabha by the United Front government of H.D. Deve Gowda.
  4. As per the draft, the seats were to be reserved for women on a rotation basis and would be determined by draw of lots, in such a way that a seat would be reserved only once in three consecutive general elections.
  5. Reservation of seats for women would cease to exist 15 years after the commencement of the amendment Act.
  6. Thereafter, the Bill lapsed and was reintroduced – in 1999, in 2002 and 2003.
