Bill To Grant 10% Quota To Upper Castes

NEW DELHI

The bill for ten per cent quota for poorer sections of society in in the general category is likely to be tabled in Lok Sabha on the last day of the winter session. The Centre has extended the proceedings in the Rajya Sabha by a day to pass important legislation.

However, the revised list of business for the Lok Sabha does not have the constitutional amendment for 10% quota listed, as is the norm for the working of the House.

The BJP has issued a whip to its MPs, asking them to be present in Parliament on as it seeks to push for the passage of a bill to provide 10 percent reservation in government jobs and educational institutes for economically weaker sections in the general category.
