New Delhi, Sept 20: The Lok Sabha passed the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam (Women’s Reservation Bill) 2023 during the Special Parliament Session held in the new parliament building on Wednesday.
The reservation Bill was introduced by various governments since 1996 and failed to reach a consensus every time. This is not only a historic moment for the Bill, which ensures equal representation of women in the lower house of parliament but it is also the first Bill to be tabled in the new parliament building.
454 members voted in favour of the Bill, while two voted against it.
