The Narendra Modi government proposes reserving 33% of seats in Lok Sabha and state assemblies for women.
The bill, named Nari Shakti Vandana Adhiniyam, awaits implementation after the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
1/3rd of SC/ST reserved seats in Lok Sabha and state assemblies will also be reserved for women.
PM Narendra Modi considers this bill a historic change and emphasizes "women-led development."
The bill aims to increase women's participation in policy making at state and national levels.
Similar bills were attempted in 2010 but couldn't pass in the Lok Sabha.
The bill focuses on empowering women through increased participation in decision-making processes.
