Ques: Could anyone please help in finding the committe on whose
suggestion 50% reservation in PRI is given.
There is no particular committee's report based on which the union government
has increased the quota to 50% for women in Panchayat Raj. This is based on the
rural promise given by UPA before elections. The same can be known from the
speech of President Pathiba Patil, on June 4th. The UPA has taken this scheme
that is alraeady been implemented by some of the states in India.
- Bihar is the 1st state to implement the 50%^ quota in [anchayat raj in 2006.
- Till today 5 states have already implemented (Bihar, HP, Uttarakhand, MP and
-Uttaranchal is the state that provides highiest reservation for women in
panchayat raj (55%)
If anyone has any update info on this or if i am wrong in any of the above info,
please update us.
Thanks and Regards
