The Women’s Reservation Bill provides for reservation of 33 per cent seats for women in Lok Sabha and State Assemblies. It was initially tabled in the Lok Sabha on 12 September 1996 by the United Front government. After that the Vajpayee government insisted on the bill in the Lok Sabha but it could not be passed.
It was introduced in May 2008 during the UPA regime
The bill was then introduced in the Rajya Sabha in May 2008 during the UPA regime, from where it was referred to a standing committee. In 2010, the Rajya Sabha approved the bill, after which it was sent to the Lok Sabha for approval. But at this time the 15th Lok Sabha was dissolved due to which this reservation bill expired.
Kavita said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised in the 2014 and 2019 general elections that his government would bring this bill and it was also included in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) election manifesto. Kavita said a day ago that India ranks 148 out of 193 countries in terms of representation of women. There are only 78 women members out of 543 members in Parliament, which is only 14.4 percent of the total members of Parliament.
