This week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a significant announcement regarding the approval of the women’s reservation bill by the Union Cabinet. This marks a momentous occasion, given that this proposal has been delayed and forgotten for many decades.

However, it’s important to note that the implementation of the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam can only occur after the process of delimitation in India. This step can only commence after the first post-2026 census. Therefore, several prerequisites must be met before we witness the actual implementation of this bill.

Furthermore, once the bill is passed by both houses of parliament, it will also require approval from 50% of the state assemblies to become a law and an act.

Upon successful enactment, 33% of the designated seats will be reserved for women. This bill has the potential to significantly increase the representation of women in parliament, potentially raising their numbers from 82 to 181. Clearly, this would constitute a substantial change, and the internet is buzzing with various opinions on this matter.
