The bill will be implemented only after delimitation
The biggest catch in the new bill is that it will come into force only after delimitation. Delimitation will be based on the census to be conducted after the passing of this bill. Census and delimitation before the general elections in 2024 is almost impossible.

According to this formula, if Assembly and Lok Sabha elections are held on time, then women’s reservation will not be implemented this time. This may come into effect from the 2029 Lok Sabha elections or some earlier assembly elections.

for three decades Women’s reservation bill was pending
The proposal for reservation of women in Parliament has been pending for almost 3 decades. This issue was first raised by the Committee to Assess the Status of Women in 1974. In 2010, the Manmohan government had passed the 33% reservation bill for women in the Rajya Sabha with majority.

Then SP and RJD opposed the bill and threatened to withdraw support from the then UPA government. After this the bill was not introduced in the Lok Sabha. Since then the women’s reservation bill was pending.
