Prior to the Lok Sabha elections, the Narendra Modi government took a big decision. In the Union Cabinet meeting on Monday, it has been decided that 10 percent reservation will now be given to the upper castes. These reservations will be given to economically weaker sections. This way the Modi government reversed the decision of the SC / ST Act in 2018, it was being told that the upper caste were angry.
It is believed that on Tuesday, Modi Government can present the Constitution Amendment Bill in Parliament. Tuesday, Jan 8 is the last day of the winter session of the Parliament.
Who will get the benefit?
The person who has more property than the fixed limit will not get the benefit of this amendment. Assuming the sources, the reservation can be provided to people having annual income less than 8 lakh and less than 5 acres of land. Apart from this, those who have their own house on government land (DDA, the land of the Corporation) will not be able to get the benefit.
Constitution must change
Modi government is bringing this reservation on an economic basis, which has no system in the Constitution. In the Constitution, there has been talk of reservations on the basis of caste, in which the government has to amend the constitution to implement it. This decision of the government is being linked to the Lok Sabha elections.
The government will soon change the constitution for this. For this, changes in Article 15 and Article 16 of the Constitution will be made. Changing both the paragraphs will give way to clear reservations on economic basis.
