    Cabinet likely to clear Women's Reservation Bill tomorrow

    Cabinet likely to clear Women's Reservation Bill tomorrow - India - The Times of India

    NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet is likely to take up the much-awaited Women's Reservation Bill, which seeks to provide 33 per cent reservation to women in Lok Sabha and state assemblies, on Thursday.

    Sources said the Cabinet is expected to clear the bill during the meeting.

    The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Law and Justice, and Personnel in its report in December last had recommended passage of the Bill in its present form and suggested that the issue should not be left to the discretion of political parties.

    The Bill has been hanging fire for the last over a decade for want of political consensus with certain parties like Samajwadi Party and RJD seeking a reservation within quota for women from backward classes.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
