New Delhi, September 20: On Wednesday, the Central Government will ask the Lok Sabha to adopt the Women’s Reservation Bill.

Arjun Ram Meghwal, the law minister, will introduce the bill for debate in the Lok Sabha and work to get it passed.


The Women’s Reservation Bill, also known as the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty Eighth Amendment) Bill, 2023, was presented in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday during the supplemental list of business.

It suggests that the reservation would last for 15 years and that there would be a quota for SC and STs within the women’s reserved seats.

However, according to insiders, it is doubtful that the law would be put into effect before the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. They stated that it won’t be implemented until after the delimitation process is complete, most likely in 2029.

Following a delimitation process, the reserve will go into force and last for 15 years.

After each delimitation operation, seats designated for women will be switched out.

On Wednesday in the Lok Sabha, the administration would also push for introduction and passage of the Advocates (Amendment)Bill, 2023.

The Rajya Sabha has already approved the Bill.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, a Congress lawmaker and chair of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), will present two findings to the Lok Sabha on ground water management and matters pertaining to cultural institutions.

A report from the standing committee on labour will also be presented in the Lok Sabha by BJD MP Bhartruhari Mahtab.
