This bill propose to amend the Constitution of India to reserve 33% of all seats in the Lower house of Parliament of India, the Lok Sabha, and in all state legislative assemblies for women. The Rajya Sabha passed the Bill in March 2010, but it still hasn’t received the Lok Sabha’s assent. Under the previous ruling dispensation, one could cite the unwillingness of coalition partners to play ball.
